Hi @akshaykoshti401,

Is your database on the same droplet? Have you tried to restart MySQL, maybe there is a query stuck or something like that. Additionally, if it’s on another droplet/server, I’ll recommend rebooting the said droplet.

As for the droplet you are on, check if any process is actually holding up the MySQL service. You can do that with the command lsof.

Here are the most used lsof command in case you haven’t used it - lsof commands
