    Hi,

    You usually get that error when your VPS runs out of resources especially RAM.

    At this moment what you can do is restart the VPS to get the RAM usage down to temporarily login.

    You will need to reboot and optimize your setup to minimize RAM usage

    If you are using OpenVZ or Virtuozzo, you can dynamically allocate more RAM to your VPS w/o rebooting it.
    See ' vzctl set ' command options for more details.
