I have suffer this just now.. this is lack of Memory RAM..the Micro instance is just 640 mb ;)... you need at least 1 GB... 
Frist try to restart vufind... and index again.... If it fails try to create Swap memory using HD 

If it fails... upgrade your instance to small at least with 1.7 GB

We are about to start looking at VuFind2 in order to move over from 1.3
over the summer. Excellent timing on the release!

I thought I would start by just playing around with it on an Amazon Web
Services instance to work through the basics and avoid damaging our in
house test/backup system. I am trying this on a AWS free Micro.T1 which
has 8Gb storage and 0.6Gb RAM. This is also a chance for us to have a
look at AWS.

All went very well with setting it up (and I can see a default VuFind
search page) until I actually tried starting VuFind. I get the following
Starting VuFind ...
STARTED VuFind Tue Jun 25 12:43:31 UTC 2013

ubuntu@ip-xxx-xx-xx-xxx:/usr/local/vufind2$ nohup: appending output to
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
And then nothing. I assume that there isn't enough memory and I need to
try again on a bigger AWS instance, but I thought I would just confirm
this  before doing anything else. It's all part of the learning
experience and so far the steps have been very easy.
