How to increase Maximum Execution Time & Memory Limit for WooCommerce

Edit your wp-config.php file

Add this to the top, before the line that says, “define( 'DB_NAME', 'xxx' );”:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');

Edit your PHP.ini file

If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini If your line shows 64M try 256M:

memory_limit = 256M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
max_execution_time = 30000

Edit your .htaccess file

If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 256M
php_value max_execution_time 30000

Contact Your Host

Should you not feel comfortable in trying the above methods, or the above did not work for you, you need to talk to your hosting about having them increase your Maximum Execution Time & Memory Limit.
