Linode Resize breaks database connections
I've created a help ticket, but I wanted to ask the wider community about this.
I have been using OpenLiteSpeed (Ubuntu 20 and Debian 8), with PHP7.4.9 and MariaDB (version depends on OS).
Some WordPress plugins break and have issues communicating with the database after the Linode is resized. I have tried several ways to fix this, been over debug logs. All to have the Resize break things that were working without any problems before.
Has anyone experienced this before? Should I switch to MySQL, and would that make any difference?
I'm considering moving to another VPS provider because I have been dealing with this for about a month and I'm almost certain it isn't LiteSpeed/ WP/ plugin related.

The key we would need to help find out what’s causing these issues is to understand what the actual error is.
What errors do you get from the plugins after the resize? How did you resolve it post-resize?
A resize will trigger a cold boot of the Linode as it will be completely shut down and (maybe) migrated to a different host. Do you see similar issues if you completely shut down your Linode and boot it back up again?
