    I am having similar issues. I've added swap space, but the problems still happen randomly. Any new details on what could help?

    You may want to add some swap space to your virtual server, we put together two articles in our community section to help with that:

    https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-swap-on-centos-6

    If that doesn't help then you may want to consider increasing the size of your virtual server or tuning some of your MySQL settings. If you are running with the base tuning options from a clean MySQL install they should be ok, but depending on how much caching is being performed and what other services you may have running it could just be resources are constrained.

    Thanks
