Mysql Errcode: 24 – Too many open files in Plesk.

 

With MariaDB installed

 

  • Firstly, connect to the server via SSH.
  • Modify MariaDB startup script:
# systemctl edit mariadb
  • Set open files limit for the MariaDB service:
[Service]
LimitNOFILE=8192
  • Restart the MariaDB service:
# systemctl restart mariadb
  • Verify the changes:
# egrep “open files” /proc/$(cat `plesk db -Ne “show variables like ‘pid_file'” | awk ‘{print $2}’`)/limits
Max open files 8192 8192 files

 

With MySQL installed

 

  • Firstly, connect to the server via SSH.
  • Modify MySQL startup script:
# systemctl edit mysql
  • Set open files limit for the MySQL service:
[Service]
LimitNOFILE=8192
  • Restart the MySQL service:
# systemctl restart mysql
  • Verify the changes:
# egrep “open files” /proc/$(cat `plesk db -Ne “show variables like ‘pid_file'” | awk ‘{print $2}’`)/limits
Max open files 8192 8192 files

 

Mysql Errcode: 24 – Too many open files in Directadmin

Some of solutions provided by our Support Techs in Directadmin.

1.Edit /etc/init.d/mysqld and add this to the top, after #!/bin/sh

ulimit -HSn 1024
ulimit -HSn 32768
ulimit -HSn 1024000

Which should force it to try and set it as high as it can go. If one of the value is too high, delete that line, or lower the value.

2.Check /etc/my.cnf. Under the [mysqld] section, if you have a open_files_limit variable, increase it, eg:

open_files_limit=32768

Then restart mysqld.

3.Confirm in mysql itself by checking the open_files_limit variable to ensure it’s increased, by running the SQL query:

Show global variables like ‘open%’;
