problem: server stopping once a day

    my plesk 7.5 server has a strange behaviour for some weeks, and i can't figure out what i changed to provoke that.

    the plesk server is running in virtuozzo, but is not accessible. when i login to plesk i get directly to virtuozzo and when i click on the clients or domains i get a blank page.

    it isnt possible to fetch emails or connect to the mysql database for php scripts. but webservice are running.

    outlook reports the following error:
    db_connect: failed to connect to database: Error: Can\'t connect to local MySQL server through socket \'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock\' (111)\"

    when i restart the VPS in virtuozzo everything runs fine again. and then, next day, booooooom, again that error.

    does anyone have a clue for that? maybe so failure in the mysql server? what can i do to solve that problem?

    What version of MySQL are you running?

    You might need to edit my.cfg to "old password" usage...

    In /etc/my.cnf

    insert under:

    and then restart mysql and try again :)

    Hope this helps, I a bit sleepy!
