Hello @Rajvikas,

By looking at the log you have sent, It seems that your server is not configured to handle the large files.

Memory is not properly allocated to handle the larger file uploads on the server. In order to rectify the issue, you need to configure some parameters as given below.

Add the following lines in functions.php ,

ini_set('memory_limit', '8192M');
ini_set('max_input_time', 60000);
ini_set('max_execution_time', 60000);

( You can tune the above parameters according to your need )

Also, please consult with your server admin about the same changes. Maybe he will be able to give you the better option to configure the server according to your need.

Thank you.

Hello mam,

After adding these lines in function.php get error …

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 443809792) (tried to allocate 128 bytes) in /home3/mahalik1972/public_html/wp-includes/cache.php on line


Hello @Rajvikas,

Please, follow this document link ( section - Increasing memory allocated to PHP ) and try increasing the memory allocated to PHP - https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

It should fix the issue.


hello mam, i am increased memory limit 8192M but facing same problem.


Hello @Rajvikas,

I think there is some issue with your server configuration. I suggest you to once contact your server team regarding this issue. I hope they can help you better with this error.

Also, once try to activate the rtMedia by deactivating other plugins on your website( except BuddyPress ).


Hello mam,

server team checked server configuration there is no issue in sever configuration. Issue is in plugin rtmedia and BuddyPres. both plugin not works together. if i am deactivate rtmedia then buddypress works and when i am deactivate buddypress then rtmedia works. when i am activated both plugin then its not worked.

Hi @Rajvikas,

rtMedia is designed to be fully compatible with BuddyPress, so there should be zero conflict between the two plugins.

Also, can you provide us with SSH access to your server? This might help us get a better idea of your setup. I have just sent you a personal message, you can provide us with your login details through this.
