Hello everyone, I'm new at database. please help me to solve issues with mysql error logs

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I get occasional error establishing database connection error on WP site. It happens regularly. To prevent it from happening again, I need to fix it, after the error I checked MySQL error logs and they are something like this

I AM READY TO PROVIDE MORE DETAILS IF NEEDED

[ERROR] mmap(137363456 bytes) failed; errno 12
[ERROR] Cannot allocate memory for the buffer pool
[ERROR] Plugin initialization aborted with error Generic error
[ERROR] Failed to initialize DD Storage Engine
[ERROR] Data Dictionary initialization failed
[ERROR] Aborting

How do I know what causes it and how can I fix it?

This happens when I am not around. If 3-4 days go without signing in, it happens automatically. Then I have to restart the server to get back website working again. ↑ Those are errors I get in mysql error logs.

The website is live and database is working, but this error happens if I am not around and can’t restart the server.
