    I am installing WordPress for the first time, my website is hosted by (mt)media temple.

    ive put all of my WP files on my server, and created database. Then changed the wp-config.php with the name of my database and put the user name password.

    I tired accessing http://www.visualadvice.com/wp-admin/install.php
    but it gives me this message.

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 46080 bytes) in /home/virtual/site293/fst/var/www/html/wp-admin/includes/update.php on line 149

    on my host php.ini it say this

    ; Resource Limits ;

    max_execution_time = 60; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
    max_input_time = 60; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
    memory_limit = 32M; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)

    i changed it 32M but it says maximum 8MB

    I'm stucked also.

    I followed the one-click installation in Fantastico via CPanel and the resutlt is:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 2097152 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 30720 bytes) in /home/marioli/public_html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 22

    It's very annoying! I found no solution in another topic. I want to have this up and running. The Free-install service is down. Who can help?

    My hosting provider solved this problem. He said that I can't do anything because I have no adminstrator rights on the server.
