Although I’ve recently upgraded the machine that I use as a webserver, it is still quite an obsolete machine. I’ve been having lots of trouble with the MySQL database (backend for this website) dying, and I’m quite sure it is a memory problem.

A quick web search led me to this good summary of low-memory configuration options for MySQL and Apache. I’ve tried some of the suggestions in my.cnf, and we’ll see if it makes a difference.
