Also look at this links http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/error-log.html and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/slow-query-log.html try to enable slow-query-log. It might come up with an unknown slow query . when you have those errors if you log to the mysql server can you query anything to the db? or the server is dead? Also take a look at this link http://www.unix.com/web-programming-web-2-0-mashups/75618-mysql-tuning-tools -mysqltuner-pl-tuning-primer-sh.html Come back with reports and news. sergio rosa On 13/05/2010 17:15, Joe Littleton wrote: I tried your config for my.cnf but I am still having the same issue.
