Re: WP plugin update - website now offline



To increase memory, you would do so in the wp-config.php file.


This file is located in the root of the server.  Be sure to make a copy of that file *before* making any changes and save it to your hard drive.  This way if something whacky happens you have the original copy to restore.


You'll look for this line:


define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '40M' );

and change it to:


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


HTH! 😉
