First reboot

November 5, 2007

No troubles no learning. I started to have a few with VPSLink now.

Yesterday I imported database of size about 2 Mb into my Habari install and used WXR to import content of this site into my trial WP install in my Link-2 plan. This plan has 5G storage and 128Mb RAM running under OpenVZ.

During import I have to increase the upload file size to 10M in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini.

I started to have problem of logging in via SSH and got below error when clicking around in my WP site.

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 786432) (tried to allocate 77824 bytes) in /var/www/blog/wp-includes/classes.php on line 477. Very soon after that I have been refused login by ssh_exchange_identification: connection closed by remote host and can’t even do a ls because of fork: cannot allocate memory even if I have logged in.

Technical support said I better upgrade to Link-3 plan with 256Mb RAM because Link-2 is not meant for dynamic site with database backend. I said my sites aren’t even public and I was the only visitor clicking? If I could do this at a 64Mb RAM plan with Budget Dedicated why can’t I do this with VPSLink?

Support said they have turned off MySQL server in order to let me do SSH login. I don’t think they should be messing around that way because I have rebooted my OS last night and have no trouble since then. Anyway I’ll see if I could slim down Apache and MySQL a bit tonight.

For record below is output of ‘top’ after my first reboot.
