    I set up a murmur server on a VPS account, and for about three hours it worked
    fine. Suddenly, it kicked everyone off and even after restarting the service
    several times no one could get back on the server. I deleted the murmur.sqlite
    file and it started working again for about three hours. This time there was
    only one peron idling on the server so I know it wasn't bandwidth being over-
    exerted.

    Here's the log file snippet from when it happened:

    It's not practical to delete the sqlite file several times a day. Any ideas
    what might be causing the problem?

    I opened up the sqlite database and deleted a single row in the acl table and
    the server starts working again without any kind of reboot. I know the ACL
    isn't causing the problem so I'm completely clueless as to why this is
    happening.

    Deleting the database no longer works. I can't figure out any way to make the
    server accessible. We all get this error when trying to connect:
    Connecting to server <ip>.
    Server connection failed: Connection timed out.

    I've killed and restarted the process, I've changed ports, I've deleted the
    database (which it no longer creates).

    I don't know what else to do.

    I have the same problem except I don't think it's from the database. People on my server can stay fine but after a few hours they start disconnecting with the same log messages:

    <W>2013-02-03 23:35:06.610 1 => <43:broski(3)> Timeout
    <W>2013-02-03 23:35:06.612 1 => <46:Herrow(2)> Timeout
    <W>2013-02-03 23:35:06.613 1 => <43:broski(3)> Connection closed: [-1]
    <W>2013-02-03 23:35:06.615 1 => <46:Herrow(2)> Connection closed: [-1]
    <W>2013-02-03 23:35:22.110 1 => <47:Balut(5)> Timeout

    How do we fix this? Increasing the timeout limit?

    We already have Quality of Service disabled in our mumble clients but still we DC after a while. We don't have this problem on any other server except this one.

    Please help.
