I think maybe what you are after (in your php ini) is:


change that to 128M (not MB) and also change:


restart apache and see if that works.

No, you don’t have to add any extra code. The reason it not showing because you defined the define( ‘WPMEMORYLIMIT’, '128M’ ); at the wrong place in the wp-config file. Just move this code at the very beginning under <?php
