I’m using wordpress on ubuntu (standard offer, didn’t change any seetings) on minimal configuration (512 MB). New, small blog, just 1 page and 2 posts. Maximum pageviews per day - 156 (yesterday).
Today in the morning I’ve found it doesn’t work. The reason is that mysql is down. I’ve restarted linux. The only visitor was me. But after short time mysql was down again (there were no visitors except me, so not big load). It repeated several times.
Later I’ve created 1GB swap file. For some time it was ok. So I thought that problem was solved. But later I found that mysql was down again. So 1,5 GB is not enough?
It seems like apache eats a lot of memory at some point. But I’m not sure.
Did anyone experience the same problem? Should I change any apache or mysql settings? I thought standard offer by DigitalOcean should work properly.
Here is the part of mysql error.log during crash:
