Memory problem with Paypal addon (headers already sent)

    Recently I suffered memory problems on one of my Wordpress single site installation.

    I proceeded to disable all plugins and reactivate them one by one

    Found out that the Paypal add on is causing an error when I try to upload media from the media uploader

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/ntdswp/public_html/dev/content/plugins/gravityformspaypal/paypal.php:5643) in /home/ntdswp/public_html/dev/wp-admin/async-upload.php on line 26
    
    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 97517568) (tried to allocate 4800 bytes) in /home/ntdswp/public_html/dev/wp-includes/media.php on line 258

    this is the error Wordpress gave me

    If i disable that plugin (Gravity Forms paypal addon) everything went back to normal

    I think the error is caused by empty spaces at the end of "paypal.php" file

    having some space before and after the final closing php bracket

    ?>

    may have caused the issue

  4. I have not seen those errors before with the Gravity Forms plugin or any of the add-ons. Were you able to resolve this issue or do you still need help?

    well apparently yes, but I think the errors show only under specific circumstances and there's definitely something wrong with my Wordpress installation too - however at least now I don't get those errors coming from that addon. I think it's a good practice not to leave empty spaces at the end of a closing php bracket.

  6. I do not have any blank lines at the end of either of those files in my Gravity Forms PayPal installation.

    I'm uncertain why your experience was different.
