my site has been struggling with memory issues for some time now. At first I thought it was the 300k spam comments in the db, but those got nuked and are gone now. Then I thought it could be a plugin but I've disabled almost every plugin and that doesn't seem to change anything. I've run the P3 plugin and it doesn't identify any plugin causing issues other than JetPack, and the memory issues predate JetPack.
I've tried all caching and performance enhancing tricks and plugins.
My host says the issue comes with wp-load.php so I'm thinking the issue may be in my theme somewhere, but I don't know how to diagnose the theme and find where this error might be. For the record, the host says

The or whatever is especially helpful.
Can someone here help me diagnose the issue or point me towards a tool that can help? Thanks in advance!
