And the issue is? Details of the issue would be good.  But, as others have
pointed out, Fedora 8 EOLed early 2009. While you can certainly run Fedora
on servers (as I do myself), if you are looking for it to be run as a core
enterprise system, I would invest in a support subscription from a commercially
supported distribution like Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

While you are contemplating getting a Red Hat subscription, perhaps you
might want to do the following:
a) Check the machine's memory.  You might have RAM related issues.
b) Are you running out of disk space for the applications running?
c) What else other than MySql is the machine running?
