    Hey guys I searched but couldn't find an answer here. I tried adding Syncontent to my plugins and when I tried to activate it I got a fatal error saying that my Wordpress memory has been exhausted. Is there anyway to increase it?

    Thx

    Just go to wp-setting.php using your cpanel file manger in your blog root, find this line :

    Code:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '32M');
    and replace 32 with 64 .. .

    thanks!

    EDIT: Ok, so I did what you told me to do. But I still get this error:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7 bytes) in .../SynDB.php on line 42033

    Look for it in your php.ini
    This file is usually in your root where you have setup your WP.

    Change to the following by doing a Ctrl+F:
    memory_limit = 64M
    upload_max_filesize = 20M
    post_max_size = 20M

    Yep that's it :), it depend to your hosting/server memory limit but if you face any problems like that again just increase it to 80, 128 .. .
