Unable to launch quickstart


I am a new Magento member. After I uploaded the quickstart package to the server (Bluehost) I am getting an error message, "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) ……………/lib/Varien/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php on line 360
" . I have followed the steps of the installation guide your website provided. Please help.

You might have to increase the memory allocation (which your host should be able to modify) in php.ini to something more reasonable. Unfortunately, magento is a resource hog.

It’s currently set at 32MB, you’d need to double that at least.

I am a new Magento member also, and this is a good reminder. I selected a new host (Properhost) for their Magento experience, and hope it’s going to work well with JM Sulfur.
