256M is fine for running a regular WordPress site, but often I have to edit
php.ini and change the
memory_limit (eg, if I want to run the
wp package command).
I propose an add-on to the dashboard, in
Site Setup, giving us the ability to in-/decrease the PHP
memory_limit. To prevent typos etc it could be a select box or a slider allowing us to choose between
256M(default), 512M, 1024M, 2048M or
