after several months of (largely) problem free use of phpBB3 this morning i was greated with the error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]
User bathcity_new3 has already more than 'max_user_connections' active connections 
An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
i assumed it was my host (valuehost) but they cam back with the answer
firstly isn't 1203 the error code and, more importantly, i can't access the forum to disable it - what can i do?!Try to disbale (sic) your forum and access DB from the panel. The error means too many visitors at once (1203). 1203 - is realy (sic) too many and the server can not handle it.
