All commands on my VPS return “fork: Cannot allocate memory”

Question:

No matter what I do, my VPS returns “fork: Cannot allocate memory”. What is happening?

Answer:

“fork: Cannot allocate memory” means that you have locked up the VPS by allocating too much memory (and thereby no memory is left to start (ie. fork) any new processes). You can try to kill -9 processes that are running but many times you need to reboot the VPS from the control panel.
