Server keeps crashing - Need help to understand why?

Good morning all,

I’m not sure where to start really.

My wordpress server seems to crash every so often, it can be anywhere between 1 and 2 weeks.

The website just doesn’t load, comes up with page cannot be displayed. I restart the server and it loads just fine after that.

Can someone please give advice how to investigate further? Or even how to provide logs?

Thanks for your response. I have installed that.

I followed the guides for RAM and it has 1gb physically and 4gb in swap, so be surprised. I don’t get the usual “error establishing database connection” usually associated with RAM.

I can’t see any log file you mentioned, although there is an error log created this morning and it details a lot of askminet so it could be that?

I am running Ubuntu 14.04
