I did a website for my local library about a year and a half ago using Joomla and the XAMPP 1.7.5. I'd never done a website before this. I haven't had to do much maintenance on it but we just got an error when trying to access the sight that says...
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24 bytes) in /home/mcpl08/public_html/libraries/joomla/database/database/mysql.php on line 652
How do I fix this? I believe this is a database issue and not a Joomla issue but if I'm wrong just let me know and I'll head over to the Joomla forum. Sorry, as I've only done this once as a favor and haven't messed with it since I just don't remember enough to figure this out quickly.
