Error after activating eventespresso core plugin – fatal error: Allowed memory size bytes exhausted (tried to allocate)

I uploaded the event espresso 4 core through wordpress plugin uploads, which was initially successful, but when I clicked activate, the screen went blank and the website showed the following error:

‘Fatal error: Allowed memory size bytes exhausted (tried to allocate)’

Would this still be a wp memory limit that is too low? Or is this something else? I have deleted the plugin for now, but is there anything I can do to not make this happen on the second try? It surprised me that the uploading went alright, but the activating made this happen.

Hi there,

The upload does not increase the amount of RAM your site uses, it just adds the plugin to the sites storage space so its normal for the upload to work fine but for the site to exceed the memory limit when activating a plugin.

You can increase the memory available to your site if you have FTP access, you’ll need to edit the wp-config.php file and add something like:

define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M' );

Just above the line that says /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

More information can be found here:

Note the amount of memory needed will depends on the plugins you have installed so you may need a higher value and the above will only work if your host actually allows you to change the value on the server. If you are unsure I would recommend contacting your host and have them increase the PHP memory limit for you.
