By default, a PHP script can allocate up to 128 megabytes of memory. You can modify this limit by changing the memory_limit directive in an .htaccess file.

To change the PHP memory limit, follow these steps:

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Then go to File Manager from cPanel.

  3. Now go to your document root and open .htaccess file by right click. Then click on the “Edit”

  4. Now put the following code. Replace xxx with the new memory limit value that you want to set, in megabytes:

php_value memory_limit xxxM

Save the changes to the .htaccess file and exit the text editor.

To verify that the new setting is active, create a PHP test file that contains the following code in the same directory where the .htaccess file is located:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
