Unable to log into my droplet. Error: -bash: xmalloc cannot allocate 1 bytes (771457024 bytes allocated)
I have been using the droplet normally for approximately 7 days now. Had encountered no issues whatsoever. But the previous night, I was unable to log in. Every attempt was terminated with this message:
-bash: xmalloc: /usr/src/local/bash/bash-4.3-patched/parse.y:4880: cannot allocate 1 bytes (771457024 bytes allocated)
Now the the memory requirements of my application, to my knowledge, do not exceed 5GB at max. And as logging in is out of the question, I have no idea what the problem is. Or how to solve it. Any help would be appreciated.
