Fatal Error, any help pls

Fatal error: Possible integer overflow in memory allocation (2 * 15607 + 32) in D:\xampp\htdocs\komintouch\wp-includes\shortcodes.php on line 227

This fatal error indicates a problem with PHP memory allocation. The error suggests that the system is trying to allocate an amount of memory that is beyond what is allowable or possible, resulting in an “integer overflow”.

Here are some possible solutions:

1. Increase the memory allocated to PHP: You can try increasing the amount of memory allocated to PHP. This can be done by changing the memory_limit value in the php.ini file. To do this, locate the php.ini file on your system (in the case of XAMPP, it’s typically located in xampp\php\php.ini) and search for memory_limit. Increase this value (for example, to ‘256M’ or ‘512M’), save the file, and restart the Apache server through the XAMPP control panel.

2. Disable plugins and themes: Sometimes, this type of error can be caused by a WordPress plugin or theme that is consuming a lot of resources. Try disabling all plugins and themes to see if the error persists.

3. Update PHP: This issue can also be caused by using an older version of PHP. Try updating to the latest version of PHP through the XAMPP control panel.

If these solutions do not resolve the issue, it might be necessary to examine the code in **wp-includes\shortcodes.php** at the line indicated more closely to try to determine the exact cause of the error.

Thank you for your help
