I've got an ISP, and all of our customers have databases in our mysql
My backup command is:
mysqldump --force --opt -A -pxxxxxxxx' | gzip -c >
This has worked fine for some time.
Now, however, I get an error message:
mysqldump: Got error: 1017: Can't find file:
'./usr_web22_1/invoices_va.frm' (errno: 24) when using LOCK TABLES
On different runs, it reports different files, even right after
I've looked at the mysql documentation for this error; it's at
I've looked at the startup script, put in '--open-files-limit=1024',
restarted mysql, and the error is the same.
I've looked at the table_cache and max_connections system variables,
which are 64 and 100, respectively.
My question is: what should I do now?
Since table_cache and max_connections are far less than 1024, do I
reduce them even further?
Is there something else I should be looking at?
