Raise PHP's memory_limit. 8 MB is unfortunately too small for many
operations, since much of that limit gets used up just on the script
source, compiled bytecode, and localized messages.

The installer will have tried to add this to your configuration file if
it detected a low limit, but if your provider does not allow you to
raise the limit, you may have difficulties.

If necessary try adding to LocalSettings.php:

# If PHP's memory limit is very low, some operations may fail.
ini_set( 'memory_limit', '20M' );
