[resolved] Emergency, Website Down (4 posts)

    I woke up today to find my website displaying the following error message:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 3296553 bytes) in /home/content/m/o/r/morse1921/html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 855

    It has been perfectly fine until today! I hadn't accessed the Admin module in months and now the site is down, including logging into the Admin module.

    Could someone help me? I don't know what is wrong and what to do!

    Try increasing the memory available to PHP:

    Thank you!! This worked!!

    Since I couldn't find the php.ini file, I did the following per one of the recommendations in the link and it's fine now:

    Added this line to my wp-config.php file to increase allocated memory to PHP:

    define(’WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘128M’);

    What I will do as well is go through my plugins and disable those I don't use.

    Also, is anyone else getting a flooding of spam comments? I think this may have triggered it as well. Logged into find 93 spam comments!

    Anyone have recommendations for a good spam plugin?
