XF 1.3 MySQL errors during installation

    Hello, I've tried to install XenForo 1.3.0 and got these messages:

    I wonder, why is this happening and how to fix it?

    BTW, my hosting provider says that I get these messages, because I have just 256 Mb of RAM on my Linux VDS account. Is this truth that 256 Mb is not enough for XenForo? Or my provider just wants to sell me more expensive VDS service?

    PS: I've installed XenForo from the 4th try, but now I get same error as posted above or 500 server error when I'm trying to import language file.

    That may not be enough RAM when doing installs and upgrades due to the amount of processing which occurs.

    256MB is really nothing for a whole OS, a web server, PHP processes and a MySQL database. This is an error indicating that MySQL is closing the connection. There may be more information in MySQL's error log.

    Minimal I personally would use would be 512MB. More confortable would be a 1GB one. On all my VPS's that I have created I have a variable amount defined of a minimum of 512MB up to a max (on my "more important" forum) of 4GB.
