    If you have set quotas on your disk, you will have problems. Also, I'm not sure what you're planning to run on your VM, but 256MB is very little memory. The smallest amount of memory I have on any VM is 512MB.

    Make sure you have no disk quotas enabled, and up your memory to see if that helps.

    Free memory: 256 MB - is the requirement at the official site. But you should make it bigger, if you want to run it. It's not a bug or whatever. You just need more memory.
