Well … sorta. I can’t upload any size of image, but previously I was limited to about 0.3MP (640Ã—480). Now I can upload up to about 1.5MP without the dreaded Memory error. I can also use WordPress’s Auto Upgrade feature again.
Daddy Hogwash’s “WordPress 3.0 Upgrade Complete after Solving Fatal Error: Out of Memory Issue” is what fixed it. His suggested number of 40M fixed the auto upgrade problem, while I upped it to 64M to get larger images to work with my host, 1and1.com.
Update: There is no fix for this. Memory limit on my kind of hosting is ~34M. Any higher is not allowed. This seemed to work for a while, now doesn’t.
YARPP requires MySQL version 4.1 or later. Partly due to the age of my blog, I still had my WordPress database at 1&1 at MySQL 4.0. They now offer MySQL 5, and any new databases are created under the newer version. As I’ve used less than 5% of my database allocation, it was a simple job to create a new database, backup the old one, restore it to the new database, then point my wp-config.php to the new DB.
(If it still doesn’t work, view theÂ source to your Settingsâ†’YARPP configuration page. Error messages are helpfully, if cryptically, embedded in HTML comments.)
I’ll probably still get a few “No Related Posts” appearing until the cache fills, but that should go away soon.
