You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"
Does this snippet (still) work?
Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.

8 thoughts on “WooCommerce: Fix WP Memory Limit issue”
I don’t know if you are still looking at this, but i have a woocommerce wordpress site that gets an out of memory error consistently with 2Gig allocated. This is defined in php.ini, and wp-config. I’ve also tried adding to .htaccess, and have RlimitMem max set as well… WordPress shows allocated memory of 2G in admin panel. I know its a plugin issue, but i’ve stripped down to theme and woocommerce plugins only and still get the errors. Any other tricks you know of i may be able to try? I’m hosting in AWS on a Centos box.
Try disabling ALL plugins except Woo
I will use 512MB limit in php.ini and wp-config also, it is working good.
also can disable cart fragments for super speed:
mostly Woo sites don’t need those cart frags anyway.
Thanks Karim 🙂
Hi! If i have a 4GB RAM virtual server and running Woocommerce on it what is the ideal WP Memory limit to set for a woocommerce site?
It should be at least 64MB Norbert. Take a look here. Hope this helps 🙂
I’ve changed to define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘128M’); But WooCommerce still sees WP Memory Limit at 40M.
Not sure what more can be changed.
Hello Heidi, thanks so much for your feedback. Unfortunately in this case you’ll need to contact the hosting provider, they have probably set a limit that you can’t override unless you ask them. Let me know how this goes. R
