At first I thought it was a resource issue because I'm only using the lowest AWS ec2 instance, but now I think it might be something else.

I Google'd about a bit as it seems to be a common problem but couldn't find my issue, it only seems to happen when I update or install a plugin.

Rebooting my EC2 instance fixes the problem so either I have to upgrade my instance or it's a database issue.

Could someone point me in a direction on how to find out if it's a database error?

Do you have access to server logs? – s_ha_dum Jan 24 '14 at 14:20
@s_ha_dum Probably... the question is how do I access server logs? – UzumakiDev Jan 24 '14 at 14:21
I don't know. That is very server specific and I have never used EC2. You will need to ask your host. – s_ha_dum Jan 24 '14 at 14:24
Righty oh, brb. I am my host sooo I should find out ha. – UzumakiDev Jan 24 '14 at 14:24
Ok. You are the host? That doesn't really make a lot of sense unless you are Amazon. What kind of access do you have and what OS does the server run? – s_ha_dum Jan 24 '14 at 14:28
