Hi guys! I am running a VPS based on Debian Etch 4.0 with Apache 2 and MySQL 5.

All is working fine but sometimes the MySQL stops suddenly without error. I have read that if the MySQL has a high load doesn't stop the service so I am not sure what's going on...

I have tried "/bin/dmesg" but outputs nothing so I don't know what can I read or try to fix it :(

Can you help me please?

It could be segfaulting. Try attaching gdb to the daemon and see what happens when it dies.


That's only for kernel messages. Mysql is just an application.

mysqld will usually have an error log file:

tail /var/log/mysql/mysqld.err

If this does not work your error log is somewhere else try

cat /etc/mysql/my.cnf grep "log-error"

to get the location of your error log.
