    It means that particular process request has exceeded the maximum allowed. Sometimes there is some breathing room and you can adjust it yourself: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

    Usually though you should contact your hosting provider. Or stop using such memory intensive plugins/themes.

    Thanks for your advice. just found that plugins that occurs that problem and that is WP DB BACKUP. but this is an important plugin i think. Is there any good alternate to it or should i continue using it by doing some changes on settings?

    Usually contacting the author is the best recourse.

    Looking at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/ it hasn't been updated over a year, which can be a warning sign.

    I know there are alternatives (free and paid), but I am not very familiar with any of them.

    You need to ask your hosting company for help with this if you don't understand how to do this:

    Where is your site hosted?

    The link I posted above is the solution - ask your hosting company for help if you cannot do that yourself.

    Thanks, Now It works.

    Do you think That this amount of memory is correct? Or I need to review the installed plugins?
