    Hi Andy,

    I am using WordPress 3.05 and have my memory set to 128M which seems to be more than enough. I also change the permissions of the wtc7uploads folder to 777 to make it writable to anyone, but the contact form 7 plugin will not work. Each time try to upload an image of more than 1mb to through a form on our website, I keep getting that exhausted error. I’ve been trying all the things you mentioned above but no luck. Do you have any ideas what it can be that is causing this exhausted issue. Thank so much.

    Hello Todd,

    It might be limit of your php ini max file upload size. Try to increase upload size in your php.ini

    For example, Here are two ways to increase the limit on uploaded files to 20 MB:

    *1) Add the below to the relevant php.ini file (recommended, if you have access). Note that for some hosts this is a system-wide setting. However, for hosts running PHP as a CGI script with suexec (for example) you may be able to put these directives in a php.ini file in your domain root directory.
    o upload_max_filesize = 20M
    o post_max_size = 20M
    *2) OR add the below to your .htaccess file in your Drupal root directory.
    o php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
    o php_value post_max_size 20M

    I hope it Helped.

    In the last Version of TPC Memory usage, you can see a new parameter. WP Memory. In my case Look image below. Yo can apreciate that my WP Memory is 32 MB and PHP is 64 MB.

    Can I increase the 32 Mb of WP Memory?

    Try adding this line to top of your wp-config.php file:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was having issues with the pages becoming blank after saving the changes, emptying cache and etc in the admin panel.

    Adding the: define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’); (To the wp-config.php right above: define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘dbname’); worked perfectly!

    Yes Valentin is right you have to add a “define” before the “(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’)”

    thanks for asking to not add the wp_memory limit to bottom

    one little mistake is the varaibles arent enclosed in single quotes , so i got blank page after this update to wp-config file.

    please edit it,ideally it should be
    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);
