A lot of us on shared hosing may have used the following to override the default available memory for WordPress in our wp-config, …usually as a result of the ‘Fatal error: Allowed memory size of…’ error.

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

However recently I had a problem where WP SEO by Yoast was crashing my site and giving me this error but no matter to what I boosted the available memory, it still showed as 256M.

As you are here for a solution and no any long winded story about symptoms and how annoying this was to remedy …the problem is the WP core itself.

In /wp-includes/default-constants.php …right at the top, …you see this:

	// set memory limits
	if ( !defined('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT') ) {
		if( is_multisite() ) {
			define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
		} else {
			define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '40M');
		}
	}

	if ( ! defined( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT' ) ) {
		define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );
	}

What this tells you is that just setting

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M');

alone is not enough, …don’t forget to also set

define('WP_MAX MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M');

too ….else WP will limit the max memory to 256M.

That’s it, ..now back to work.

I do not normally write product reviews but this one I feel needs to be written to save others the hassle that I have been through.

Quite simply if you are seriously managing a lot of WP sites, DO NOT think about InfiniteWP. There are other systems out there which do the same thing and cost a hell of a lot more money, …and I am now realising there is a reason for this. It simply does not work consistently, and today it did worse that that, corrupted and removed (or prevented from being written by tying up resources) DB data on a commerce site.

Out of the box you think and it feels like it will do everything you wish. ..but here are the main problems (to keep this short and objective).

  • Display of data in the admin panel is inconsistent. One day it tells you everything is up to date, the next you have updates, ..this varies between refreshes of the scree and logins also
  • The admin is really sluggish, this I would imagine is what contributes to the above
  • DO NOT relay on the back add-on, as above, one moment you have all of your backups scheduled, the next it tells you “Sorry, no scheduled backups”!!
  • The backup system DOES NOT WORK, it ties up server resources, is inconsistent and has trouble with any large sites
  • The support is not great, it exists but can take ages for them to get to your problems root, I had 3 weeks just for them to tell me which error logs to send them.
  • After asking for a refund on the backup add on I was told it was past the grace period, ..although the above mentioned support ticket had taken up the time of this period to resolve

To summarise, I stuck with them, I really did, hope it would get better, but it in fact got worse. I really wanted this system to work as it was perfect for me and I invested time and money in it, and sold its virtues as part of my development package to my clients.

I must now go and undo all of that and if I wish to continue offering those same on point updates to my clients without having to do it for each of over 150 WP sites, I will have to invest +$2000/year in a tested system (I am not mentioning names, have a google, this is not an advert).

So in closing, thanks Infinite WP, it has been fun, …you have cost me time, money and aspects of my professional reputation. I hope this article prevents this happening to others.

**UPDATE

I have always had a respect for companies who address their negative feedback and are prepared to do so in the public light, …so here is the response to this article from IWP:

“Just read your review here and I just want to apologize for putting you through so much pain thats not our intension really. We reached 100,000 sites just 2 weeks ago with in a year of product development. The software works great for lot of our users and for some it causes issues. Thats why we are rewriting the whole code from the scratch up spending lots of time and efforts since we want this to work across multiple platforms. Unfortunately your server setup falls under the latter category.

But as I said we are working on v3. I totally want to apologize and If at all there is something that can be done. I would want to do it to make you happy.”

IT is worth noting that I have not completely abandoned all hope for IWP, but I have stopped using its backup system and relying on it as the only option, and if you would like to test IWP I suggest at this stage you do not move to a complete reliance, especially if you are on a cloud based hosting environment.
