CentOS server crashing repeatedly, sometimes Timed Out


I am running a Linux Server, with CentOS OS. Apache, MySQL, and PHP.
Running sites through Drupal 6. Recently the site started timing out periodically. Sometimes restarting services brings it back up. Sometimes I am locked, and cannot restart services or reboot remotely out and have to restart the whole server manually.

I am so new to Linux, I don't have the foggiest idea about where to begin to find out what the problem is. I can find the error logs, but making sense of them is another story. I suspect it's a problem with MySQL, but don't know how to confirm that, and if it is, don't know what to do about it. iiiiieeee. When I restart MySQL service, the site comes right back up. But what is taking it down to begin with?

I have tons of books, but they only tell you how things work when everyting is running perfectly. I've had several experts optimize the Apache config file, and things were fine for a while. We've had this problem before. As a matter of fact, one of the last times, the site went down and couldn't get it back up until I reverted to an older version of the db. Then, that failed the first time until a huge bunch of Boost cache files were deleted. I've done all the clean-up, I can think of, but the durn thing keeps crashing.

Any assistance at all would be helpful. Thanks, WCW

Just to make sure, when you type dmesg in a terminal window, you don't get a lot of hardware errors, right?
If there is a problem with MySQL, there should be some pretty clear messages in /var/log/mysql.

Thanks Walter. I have just run dmesg, I've noticed down at the bottom some mysql errors and then at the end something that says, "out of socket memory." I don't know how to interpret that. Here are my results:

Here are some entries from my /var/log/mysqld.log file.

I checked all the persmissions in relation to these files. found in another blog that this first sequence was caused by incorrect permissions....but mine are OK.

We do have a second server, but it's not being replicated in the standard fashion. Custom script has been written.
However, we did have mysqld-relay-bin files, but the not in this location nor do we have that number. Ours start at 000013. That path leads to a folder where there is an executable file called mysqld, but no folder or files by that name. Don't even know if that's what should be there. All my mysqld-relay-bin files are in /var/lib/mysql folder.

It would seem you do have replication set up (or had it set up).
Examine /etc/my.cnf for lines like bin-log=xxxx and server-id=xxxx which would indicate replication was set up at some point.
Also check in /var/lib/mysql for any files ending with .info

If I would have to guess I would say you restored a backup from a setup that did have replication between two mysql servers and you now have a *TON* of data waiting to be replicated to another server that does not exist (anymore).

If you do have /var/lib/mysql/*.info files but are sure there should be no replication going on, just rename them to something like (for instance) master.info.old
That will probably solve your problem.

Additional tips:
- Recent versions of phpmyadmin will show replication status and allow you to set it up fairly simply.
- Read up on mysql replication at www.mysql.com

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Walter.

Thank you Walter!!! I will look into all these. We actually DID do a db restore because several months ago the site crashed and I COULD NOT get it up, no matter what I did. A db restore was done.

There is STILL a server that custom scripts have been written for to transfer mySQL data to...I thought that becuase of these custom scripts, normal Replication was not used. but, as I mentioned, I am a newbie, and The problem is only getting worse.

I REALLY appreciate your response, and will check everything you have recommended. WCW
