Hello,

Someone I know is running a forum and they've gotten the following error:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Out of memory (Needed 8388572 bytes) [5]

SQL

SELECT COUNT(distinct t.topic_id) as total FROM parrotcare_topics t WHERE t.topic_last_post_time > 1294857185 AND t.topic_moved_id = 0

BACKTRACE

FILE: includes/db/mysqli.php
LINE: 163
CALL: dbal->sql_error()

FILE: portal/block/user_menu.php
LINE: 47
CALL: dbal_mysqli->sql_query()

FILE: portal.php
LINE: 207
CALL: include('portal/block/user_menu.php')
What does it mean exactly?

They need to contact their host and tell them.

Thanks Kevin. Would you be able to give more more information about what might be causing it? I'm interested to know why it is happening.

He is in the process of talking to his Host.

It is what it says. His board needs more memory to do what it's trying to do.

One last question, could MODs be causing this or is it just the number of members he has?

Might do as the trace is pointing to the portal but it looks like his hosting deal is pretty skinny on RAM as it is. It could do with at least double that.
