You can easily solve this issue. If your site is running on PHP 5.6 or higher, you need to add the following limits in the php.ini file.

  • max_execution_time 180
  • memory_limit 256M
  • post_max_size 48M
  • upload_max_filesize 48M

Now, get to your file root and edit wp-config.php. Make sure the WordPress memory limit increase has been done. 

If you can’t increase the limit in PHP, follow WooCommerce’s official guidelines to increase the memory limit on WordPress or contact your hosting service to do that on your behalf. In case you are not getting support from your hosting service, we recommend you get a better hosting service for your website
