  • Posted August 15, 2014

Hello, i tried to find relevant article but didn’t found any. My issue is on my VPS MySQL going down in every 2-3 minutes from yesterday. I’m using Wordpress on Ubuntu with 512MB RAM. Every 2-3 minutes my blog showing the message “Error establishing a database connection”. The site opening only after manually starting MySQL with command “service mysql start”.

Please Guide me to solve this issue.
