Hi There,

I've just uploaded the Gallery module to the system, and from the admin side, I have recieved a :-

'Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 53022 bytes) in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 141'

message when I try to access the backend.

Has anyone else ever gotten this message?

Yes, this is a common message. It appears when SilverStripe (PHP) runs out of memory.
You should increase the memory for PHP:

This can be done in many ways. Either by modifying the php.ini file, or by modifying it via .htaccess

# put this in your .htaccess
php_value memory_limit 64M

Some hosting providers allow you to change this in their control-panel.
