Two weeks ago I’ve already posted here, looking for help. The resolution I got can be found here.
I figured that the droplet I was using was the problem, so I moved on to another project, on another 1 click installation wordpress image.
The website worked fine for the last 4 days since I created it, reassuring me in my presumption that the first website’s droplet must’ve a problem.
However, about 2 hours ago, I received the error message “Error establishing a database connection” that led me here the first time.
Once again, the website itself is about 2gb large and uses a domain that was purchased 4 days ago. Since I have it linked to cloudways, I got a little curious.
Apparently my new domain received 15,595 from 43 unique users over the course of the last 4 days. I don’t have much knowledge in the ways of server management and while I don’t have caching enabled yet, something just seems super odd and I don’t believe that enabling SWAP as recommended in the linked thread is the solution here, given that my “free -h” response is
total: 985M used: 164M free: 617M
A quick # mysqladmin -u root -p status shwoed that my MYSQL is no longer running.
It also doesn’t appear to be a xmlrpc brute force since “sudo a2enconf block-xmlrpc” is already enabled.
