Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 22282240) (tried to allocate 203248 bytes) in /home/craigowe/public_html/spitfire-designs/wp-admin/admin.php on line 93

I asked server support to increase memory which they say they did but I still see memory_limit      36M in my phpinfo page.

This is the error I get when trying to log on to my dashboard. any idea how to fix this?

(I'm in a shared server env. and don't have access to php.ini)

It's most likely that it will be a plugin conflict.
Before increasing memory any more - deactivate all your plugins except wp-ecom, then turn one by one back on to find which one is conflicting with wp-ecom.

when i go here:
http://craigoweb.com/spitfire-designs/wp-admin/

i get this:
Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 22282240) (tried to allocate 203248 bytes) in /home/craigowe/public_html/spitfire-designs/wp-admin/admin.php on line 93

I'm not seeing that error when going to your link. Are you also still seeing it? or did you make a change?

you have to log in to get it - the error is all that shows - no dashboard screen, just the error

You have ftp don't you? Safer than working with the DB, just ftp into your plugin folder and rename the wp-ecom folder to something else. It will deactivate so you can get back into your admin area.

Actually, you can disable the plugins via database. You need to backup first the script using:

SELECT * FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';

then copy paste the result into a notepad. After that do this:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = '' WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';

After that all plugins are disabled, you can then  go login again and solve it using the Panel.
