Check your logs, this is the minimum a sysadmin must know!

From the information there you start investigating.

Playing victim (“I am losing visitors”) won’t help, people just find this attitude disgusting.

This can be due to many things but usually it means you have outgrown your server and the box is running out of memory. To keep the whole system from crashing the kernel OOM killer is invoked and kills the process with the worst memory score. Mysqld usually is on the top list of the kernel’s kill list so in such instances it will get squelched.

You have a couple of options:

*Upgrade I would strongly recommend you take this route

  • Set up swap this is not always possible especially OpenVPZ

  • Fiddle with settings to make sure mysqld doesn’t get killed. The kernel needs to kill something and it will continue to kill until order is restored this might mean nginx or some other critical process.

You can check the logs to verify my diagnosis but I think I am right

i found the issue. the issue was because of memory allocation so i created 4gb swap storage and i will now monitor my website and i hope i will not show database error. by the way here is my.cnf file for 1gb ram if any thing i need to edit please tell me

Good to hear you are finally getting the hang of things. I hope the guide you followed when creating Swap told you to tune the swappiness by default the kernel will just ignore this swap until you tune swappiness.

Another bit of advice. Install monit on your server. This will restart any killed processes and alert you if something goes wrong by telling you exactly what processes have been killed if any.

Thanks for replying again. yes i tuned swappiness to 10 using this code. sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=10

yah i will sure install monit on my server. thanks for the support i am very happy. thankyou onces again :blush:
