Create Swap Space

If your mysql crashes because of lack of memory use above commands to create 1 GB swap:

Run dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1M count=1024
Run mkswap /swapfile
Run swapon /swapfile
Add this line /swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0 to /etc/fstab  

Step 4 is needed if you would like to automatically enable swap file after each reboot.
