Hi all, I am running a mySQL database on a webserver hosting multiple Wordpress installations.

It seems that database is getting swamped with memory and going into a continual loop of shutting down and restarting. A reboot fixes the issue temporarily, but I have no idea what I can do to fix this.

When the issue presented itself a month ago I realise I had not created a swap drive. I have now done so, but web traffick has increased since then and I suspect this may be the cause.

Interestingly, when I SSH into my Ubuntu Server, I get a readout of my memory usage. It always says 0% SWAP usage, which I cannot explain.

The full log is below, please help!

I would take a look at what processes are being kicked off in MySQL. You can run the following command to see what is running in MySQL
mysqladmin processlist -u root -p
and it will prompt your for the root MySQL password then give you a list of what is running.
If you are having trouble with the INNODB databases I suggest looking at the tools on the Percona web site. They have several free tools for configutring MySQL and for recovery.

Hi all, thanks for the good responses. I actually realised that even though I had created a swap drive, there was a spelling mistake in /etc/fstab so it wasn't mounting on restart. Now that the swap file is back online, it seems to have no further issues.

I will look at increasing the buffer size, since 128 does seem too small.

Cheers!
