We have just deployed a site to our stage environment. Its a 500m Ram, "Cloud" VPS with Crucial Paradigm.

If we both test it together, the cms ends up hanging, and then if i refresh the page i get:

PHP Fatal error: DataObjects have been requested before the database is ready.

Looking in cpanel, the mysql service is off. Rebooting it gets us going again until the next topple.

Whats to be done? could there be a configuration i have missed in the Silverstripe? Or does it need something special turned on at the server?

Thanks, will

Just to confirm this,

We have to edit the site one at a time. If i click on a item in the tree 5 times rapid fire, the mysql proccess falls down. every time.

At this stage we can live with the slowness but it needs to be reliable.

Is there anything we can do to fix this?

Well, are you sure that it's CMS fault?
maybe it's VPS internal problem?

I have several sites running on a micro instance on AWS (613mb) and had this problem. The server was getting low on memory and was shutting down mysql. Changing the php memory_limit and adjusting some my the mysql memory parameters helped. So I reduced the memory that php and mysql used and installed varnish to compensate, and the sites are actually pretty fast.
