    Wordpress 2.8.x SERIOUS Memory Issues

    I've been fighting all day with some WP issue and found an outstanding post about it, I suggest you read it carefully (even though it might be a long read) and remember to never upgrade things just because there's a new version or because someone tells you so...

    Early this morning I had a few "Out of Memory" messages in a few of my recently upgraded (to version 2.8.4) wordpress blogs, mainly backend messages, nothing really serious.

    WTF?!? Out of memory?

    Well, it wasn't that hard to fix it, I just had to change php_value memory_limit to 64M and everything was ok, but then again I didn't feel very comfortable with it and kept searching until I've found this pearl.

    READ IT FOR YOUR OWN GOOD (and safety).

    I had this happen a week or so ago, though wordpress tossed out this error when I tried to upgrade. I strongly agree with you on NOT upgrading just because a new version is out, for me I wait awhile (sometimes a long while) in hopes that some of the major bugs will be worked out before I dive in.

    Thanks for the good read

    All of my sites are updated to 2.8.4. I have not yet seen the problem, but I had the memory limit set at 32 meg due to all of the past problems with WordPress code occasionally pigging out.

    I just set them all to 64 meg.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    On my part, wp upgrades are driven by security issues. You just can't win.

    I had some problems with the newer version. I have now downgraded, as it is better fro me, but I do think this could be a security risk

    No, but it is similar. The image you are trying to load into your thumbnailer is too large to be processed by the code using the available memory.

    The same fix should fix this issue, but you have to bump the memory limit up to 83 meg or higher.

    Add the following to the .htaccess file

    Code:
    php_value memory_limit 83M

    It could be. 2.8.4 was a security fix.
