Hi, I am building a wordpress website locally using localwp and I just ran into this error. A temporary fix would is to increase my memory limit (current memory limit is 256) but I don’t think that’s needed cuz my site is pretty simple. I’ve got only 3 active plugins:

1. Elementor
2. Starter Templates (Even with this deactivated I get the error)
3. WP Forms

The theme I am using is Astra and I imported one of their starter templates. Most of the changes to the site are me just deleting stuff from the selected theme. I’m not really sure why I’m running into this error this early on. How can I find the root cause of this issue? Appreciate your help.

  1. It’s probably Starter Templates – that plugin is notorious for having issues. Is it the latest version? Check the changelog. Same for Elementor.
