Fatal error

    You may need to contact your host and ask them to increase the PHP memory limit. See this thread on the topic - Editing wp-config.php « WordPress Codex

    I write stuff for marketers and my current clients keep me comfortably
    busy. But if you make me the right offer, I'll write stuff for you too.

    As the problem with media.php

    of course, you need more space......

    You don't actually need to increase it that much, so try 38M first and move it up slowly multiples of 2 till your error messages disappear, keeping it to a conservative amount may work better overall, especially if you are running more than one WP site on a shared server. Chances are 38M will do just fine, I had the same issue and it worked for me.
