How do I increase Php Memory Limit

I want to migrate the content of my website and receiving this error

Critical Transfer Error
Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 90645552 bytes) in /var/www/areyou/wp-content/plugins/siteground-migrator/core/Files_Service/Files_Service.php on line 381

Unfortunately, I have not had any support of the Linode support team. I am not a developer, so if you could guide me through the necessary process "for beginners" I would appreciate it.

Thank you

Hi @Ritter773 - There's a couple of other posts on the Community Questions site that may help:

However, the file size you're trying to upload is likely just too big for PHP. I'd recommend uploading the file via another method like SFTP:
