Out of memory when accessing page backend caused by small ACF repeater

  • I’m getting an “fatal out of memory” error when I try to access the admin of a page with ACF repeater field. The frontend itself works without problems though.

    The repeater is rather small and there are only 15 rows to it. Every row has 7 fields: 5 text fields, 1 WYSIWYG editor field, 1 image.

    There are two pages using this repeater, and so far, the memory only runs out in the backend of the one with 15 rows. The other one has 7 rows and everything is working fine.

    I have set the php memory limit to 256MB (and checked with phpinfo that that is indeed now my memory_limit), but still I run out of memory. How is that possible with such a small amount of data in the repeater? I even tried to remove the image from the repeater field, but it would still run out of memory.

    I have deactivated all other plugins with no effect.

    Any suggestions what else I could try?

    And since the error only shows up when I try to access the backend of the page, there’s no point in checking the page template itself for say memory-intense bad programming, is there?

    Error message:
    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 36438016) (tried to allocate 72 bytes) in [URL]/wp-includes/meta.php on line 826

  • Hi @bstn

    This might be an issue with your server, have you been able to replicate the issue on a local instance of the site?

    I would recommend you get in touch with your host to see if they have a quick fix for this.
