Installation: possible?


Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 85 bytes) in /home/veganlin/public_html/X/includes/menu.inc on line 3669

This is what happens if I install Drupal 7 from my web host's installation aid, something like Fantastico or Scriptulicious, and then install each of the modules required for Drupal Commerce. I pick one that has little else depending on it - I think it was advanced help - and I get a Fatal error. From experience, I think it's possible to use control+backarrow and have another go. Sometimes the thing installs second or third time. But this is not going to be a reliable site.

The other way of installing Commerce is what the 25 minutes lecture below suggests. I tried importing the database this morning and got an error message, which is odd because I think it has worked before:

It looks as though the hardest problem with Drupal 7 is going to be squeezing it onto cheap server space and finding ways to install without overloading the memory. There is some other system I've read about but know nothing about - I don't quite remember even what it's called - is it Drush and is that the answer?
