Increase Memory Limit

WP memory needs vary depending on a variety of factors, including the size and complexity of your website, the number of plugins and themes you use, and the amount of traffic your site receives. As a result, determining how much memory WP requires is not as simple.

It has a minimum memory requirement of 64MB, which is often insufficient for most websites. InstaWP allows you to increase your memory limit to 128MB or 256MB as many hosting companies recommend for optimal performance.

Navigation to Increase Memory Limit

From the dashboard, click on the Three dots button and select the PHP Config option from the dropdown list corresponding to the site for setting PHP.

Locate the Memory_limit (mb) field and increase the memory limit, try 128 first and then 256. See if helps with slowness or HTTP 500 internal server error.

For more information, you can refer to the Configure PHP document.
