Memory Size of 33554432 Bytes Exhausted

All servers are different and sometimes you can get the following message when trying to upgrade to the latest version of WordPress or activating a new theme / plugin through the dashboard:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted – (Error messages may very)

If you see this error, don’t worry! There is an easy fix. Simply added the following line to the wp-config.php file:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

If this doesn’t fix it on your site, you may also have to adjust the php.ini files. If you find that you need to do this, contact your host who will be able to help.
