Data base keeps tripping out (Please Help)

Post by swing2us »

Hi

Since I installed the bb2 forum my site keeps losing connection to the data base. It shows this fault ;-

A quick look suggests too many connections to the
DB as they say.....

ix11:~$ mysql -p
Enter password:
ERROR 1040: Too many connections

Has any one had this happen to them & if so what can I do about it. The main part of my site is database driven so each time the site loses connection to the database most of the site goes down.
Thanks Dean

Is there any way that the forum is not closing a connection to the database somewhere??????? pulling my hair out here.

Are you on a sharted server? THis means that MySql has too many connections at the minute, and as less people are on or less connections, it will be ok. That's a problem with your database, or maybe your host only allows so many connections at any given time. Contact them and ask them. :)
