our site is hosted on a server with 32MB RAM. Sadly, this limit is reached by now: when loading the CMS, i get an out of memory error. I have read in the forums, that this might have to do something with the large sitetree (we have quite a few subpages ... maybe 200). Is there anything i can do to load the cms, without deleting data or upgrading RAM (both are not really an option here)?

The really strange thing is that when i log in as an admin, it still works, but when i log in with another account i created (the account the editor should use to create his subpages) the error appears every time. So i begin to think, that it might be someting completly different.

EDIT: btw, phpinfo() tells me, that i have 128MB limit for scripts, so it probably isn't that

Any suggestions welcome!

Do you want to say that your server has only 32 MB Ram???

If not, then all you need to do is to allow PHP to use more memory, set it in your server's php.ini, or, if you have no access to it, add the line
php_value memory_limit 64M
to the .htaccess file in your webroot.
