So I have followed the tutorial to Install Wordpress, Nginx, PHP, and Varnish on Ubuntu 12.04. The process was smooth and easily installed, so no problems there.
The issue is every few days the MySQL connect drops out and when I run the command: $ sudo service mysql start
I get a the following message: $ start: Job failed to start
The other issues is when it first happened, I looked into setting up a script to run in cron every 5 minutes.
# CHECK DATABASE STATUS # launch-mysql.sh ps auxw | grep mysql | grep -v grep > /dev/null if [ $? != 0 ] then sudo service mysql start > /dev/null fi
Then added this to $ cron -e
*/5 * * * * ~/launch-mysql.sh
But that is not working either, any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.
