I keep on getting this on my drupal site. To fix it temporarily, I have to restart apache2 and then mysql. Getting tired of doing this and getting interrupted.

you better check your mysql log to find out what happens there.

I was having the same problem while running a fresh WordPress install on a 512MB droplet. I had to switch to using Nginx instead of Apache. As i see it the options you will hear others recommend are, 1. use a larger droplet 2. install a swap disk or 3. migrate to Nginx. <br> <br>BTW… i haven’t tested with Nginx and Drupal as yet.
