XF 1.3 xf_search_index crashed (Too many open files)


Active member
My DB crashed with this message:

Mysqli prepare error: Table './neu@002dxxxx/xf_search_index' is marked as crashed and last (automatic?) repair failed
So I delete the table an rebuild the XF search index.
Now the forum is working again :)

I want to find the cause.

The first error message in XF was that:

Zend_Db_Adapter_Mysqli_Exception: Can't read dir of './neu@002dxxxx/' (errno: 24 - Too many open files) - library/Zend/Db/Adapter/Mysqli.php:144

Zend_Db_Statement_Mysqli_Exception: Mysqli prepare error: Out of resources when opening file './neu@002dxxxx/xf_search_index.MYD' (Errcode: 24 - Too many open files) - library/Zend/Db/Statement/Mysqli.php:77
What was wrong an how can I fix the problem?
