How can I improve the performance of my WordPress blog at my current host? Below are a few things I’ve learned over the years to improve the performance of a WordPress blog (in lieu of throwing hardware at “the problem”). Surprisingly, many believe that because they have unlimited space and bandwidth they’re allowed unlimited server resources as well. This is one of those little secrets within the shared web hosting industry. Server resources like number of processes allowed and memory are virtually always limited per account. Though with a few minor tweaks you may be able to squeeze a bit more blood from that shared website hosting turnip. Let’s start with your wp-config.php file. The wp-config.php file contains your WordPress blogs settings. This one file governs how your website interacts with your website’s database (where your post content lives). About that: Ok, maybe you have not yet experienced this specific error, though an error like this may appear when a plugin begins using up all of the memory allocated to your website. To help prevent this error from occurring, and/or give your site a bit more than the default memory allowance, add this to the top of your wp-config.php
