I use a dedicated server with 12GB memory and 4 core CPU with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (x64). This not just a database server. MySQL appears to be restarting frequently, I think I can tune the config to prevent this. But I dont know how.

I can post the config if you'd like.

Mysql version:

 mysql -V
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.28, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 6.2

Do you mean a single 4 core CPU, or 4 CPUs? What else is running on the server? Is MySQL writing anything to it's log when it does restart? – Stuart Moore Nov 25 '12 at 19:13
Single cpu with 4 cores :) What else running? PHP, Apache2, nginx, memcached. The error log: – Paya Nov 25 '12 at 19:27
Looks like you've got a typo in your config. Please read it over and post it here (edit your question for that) if you can't figure it out. – Mat Nov 25 '12 at 19:56
