"Too many connections"...error

Post by UBT - Timbo » Sun May 24, 2020 4:39 pm

Hi all

I've had a couple of reports recently that trying to access the forum results in a:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Can't connect to MySQL server on '213.171.xxx.xx' (111) [2003]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
(I'm not publishing the xxx.xx bit, for obvious reasons !!)

And it has happened again this afternoon.

A support ticket was raised with the hosting provider - and a few minutes later, the forum came back online. :-)

If this happens too much then I'll have to see about moving this to a dedicated server, which might cost quite a bit more than the current fees I'm paying...

But for now, if it happens to you - just break your connection, and come back in an hours time, if you can. That might give the server a chance to catch up !!

regards
Tim
