Joomla websites keep loosing connection to databases (I think)
nginx log sample line
2017/06/20 15:37:26 [error] 20796#20796: *11706 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Warning: session_write_close(): Failed to write session data (user). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/lib/php/sessions) in /var/www/site.com/html/libraries/joomla/session/handler/native.php on line 194" while reading response header from upstream, client: 184.108.40.206, server: site.com, request: "GET //jreviews/videos?m=6b22D HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock:", host: "site.com"
Here is what you see - https://www.evernote.com/l/APHebuV1LQRCDabAqZ6UdEpPcxskMoTzilY
The error is so bad the application fails and this has been linked to a connection problem with the database. Is it possible the connection dies. It is intermittent and quite frequent.
Thanks for any help..this is going to kill my SERPS that aren't great and one of the reasons for moving to DO.
