I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong, but after moving my WP blog from Linode to AWS (as an EC2 t2.micro instance + RDS), it’s been a recurring headache. Linode was rock solid, but it seems like I’m having to reboot my EC2 instance once every week or two because it randomly disconnects from the database. I wanted to give this a try due to the AWS free tier, but I’m not sure that is going to pan out.
