MySQL Error

I’m trying to import a phpMyAdmin backup into the db I created. However, whenever I try to do it I get this error:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 4334856 bytes) in /usr/local/dh/web/phpmyadmin/read_dump.php on line 140

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the backup, I’ve used it before just fine. Is this a server issue or something I’m doing?
