exceeded the 'max_questions' resource

Post by jhansle1 »

Has anyone run in to the situation where users started receiving errors such as:

planetst has exceeded the 'max_questions' resource (current value: 75000) [1226]


I have a very busy forum and users have been experiencing this problem. The users have to refresh the page several times, or wait several minutes until the page is accessible.

This is a mysql setting that would have to be adjusted by your host. Sounds like your board has outgrown its hosting package.

That would be a limit set by your host, you'll have to contact them:
