Hello lilly,

I'm sorry you're having trouble installing software for your site. I'm happy to help you resolve this as quickly as possible.

While researching this for you, I found that your php.ini file does have the memory_limit set to 512M, but it needs to be made recursive through your .htaccess file. Please un-comment the following line in your .htaccess file in your public_html directory (replacing username with your actual username):

suPHP_ConfigPath /home/username/public_html

For more information on working with your php.ini file to control your local PHP settings, please see the following articles:

- How do I Update my Local PHP Settings?

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
