If customer got error during installing applications or in similar cases like: "unable to fork" probably it's due to privvmpages limits.

You can view the beancounters using next command from inside the vps:

 cat /proc/user_beancounters

if privvmpages result equal to :

privvmpages 102486 131072 131072 131072 6701251

you can try to increase it x2 with next command

vzctl set <vmID> --privvmpages <calue>:<value> --save  

For example:

vzctl set 324 --privvmpages 262144:262144 --save  

Note that privvmpages and some other values can be changed using SolusVM admin CP
