Fatal error: Allowed memory size of …

These couple of days I’ve been in progress of developing and maintaining a website based on WordPress which is hosted in CrazyDomains. Unfortunately I got a problem regarding memory allowance like “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of…” that some people said it was a common error problem if it is hosted in CrazyDomains. And I think that’s right, I’ve tried to follow some solutions, like:

  1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini If your line shows 32M try 64M: memory_limit = 128M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (128MB)
  2. If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file: php_value memory_limit
  3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file: Increasing memory allocated to PHP define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘128M’);
  4. Talk to your host.

Unfortunately, It doesn’t work for me as the web is hosted in CrazyDomains.

Finally I stepped into WordPress.org forums and found the solution. To sum up, I …

  1. made a php.ini file in wp-admin directory, and…
  2. added memory_limit = 256M; into it.

Eventually it works well, alhamdulillah 🙂

Which one is easier, TOEFL or IELTS ?

Setiap orang tentu memiliki pandangan yang berbeda tentang definisi ‘mudah’ untuk dirinya. Maka jika Anda bertanya ujian mana yang lebih mudah antara TOEFL dan IELTS, jawaban yang Anda dapatkan kemungkinan besar akan mengarah kepada subjektifitas seseorang. Saya mungkin akan menghabiskan waktu cukup lama untuk membaca artikel-artikel bahasa Inggris, membaca artikel tersebut sama susahnya bagi saya saat harus memahami rubrik politik dalam koran ibukota. Rumit dan kadang sulit dicari inti permasalahannya. Continue reading “Reblog: Which One is Easier, TOEFL or IELTS?”

How I Added Video Post Format into Minds (TwentyEleven Child Theme)

source: videopress.net

Several days ago I got a feedback that asked me about how I added video post format into my Minds (TwentyEleven child theme). Unfortunately I could not reply the feedback yet since I am new to the contact form system by Jetpack (Automattic). I guess the feedbacks would appear in my email, instead, it appeared on the feedbacks menu on the dashboard (shame on me 😛 ). That’s why I would like to try to explain here the way I added video format into child theme, in this case, Minds child theme.

Mac OS X: Add folder to sidebar in Finder

Today I was wondering about how to add folder to sidebar in the finder. Then I googling it, and I’ve got several potential solutions from some forums. However when I tried they tricks, it did not work well. That’s why I figured if I can do it by “Drag and Drop” technique, and guess what? It works perfectly. So what I’ve done was, I

  1. opened the Finder,
  2. located the folder that I wanted to show on the sidebar,
  3. then dragged it onto the sidebar and dropped it.

Voila, it’s done 🙂

Just a simple trick I’ve found today as a new Mac user, hope it is useful

Ubuntu essential knowledges

I migrated to Ubuntu one year ago, but I still don’t get the essential operation there. So, I put some random Ubuntu essential knowledges about it especially when it come to web development. Here there are several links I’ve found useful*.

Structure of file system

File permission

Web development

From the article above, you can install Node.js via package manager provided by ppa:chris-lea/node.js by actually adding python-software-properties package. Just run these commands and there you go.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties python g++ make nodejs

For further explanation, you can read here.

Updating Ubuntu

My experiences upgrading Ubuntu using software updater was not good and I had a little trouble with it. Fortunately, we can upgrade it using terminal and I found it easier and much more faster. At that forum site, I prefer the solution from NikTh that I can make it sort as:

  1. Check whether there is an upgrade or not, using sudo do-release-upgrade -c
  2. Housekeeping,
    sudo apt-get --purge autoremove
    sudo apt-get clean all
    sudo apt-get purge $(dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/ { print $2 }')
  3. and Upgrade using sudo do-upgrade-release

Those steps are just to make it easy to remember of course, for the details you can step into the site and read whole the article 🙂


In terms of installing themes, here are the steps I found easier to do:

  1. Download the theme, and extract it
  2. open Terminal (ctrl + alt + t), and execute this command sudo mv theme-name /usr/share/themes/
  3. then, activate it! you can do this using “Unity Tweak Tool” because it’s easier
