This has happened a number of times in the past week, and we can't figure out what the souce of the problem is.
Our server goes through a complete break down, one service after the next, seemingly starting with mysql. From there, apache goes out and we can't get in w/ ssh. The server has to be physically restarted.
The first errors we can see in the logs are from php scripts that connect to mysql:
during this time perl scripts connecting to myql give the error:mysql_connect(): Can't create a new thread (errno 11). If you are not out of available memory, you can consult the manual for a possible OS-dependent bug in....
after a few minutes of this, the whole server goes down and we have to call the hosting company to manually restart. Our server has 256 RAM, which may be part of the problem, though most of the time the ram is at less than 30%. Also, one would hope that maxing out the ram would have less dire consequences.Resource temporarily unavailable: couldn't spawn child process:
Any ideas would be very helpful.
