MySQL Error

Postby Athena » 28 Nov 2012, 07:15

I had this error when I tried to log in this morning:

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Too many connections [1040]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.


Anyone experienced that too?

Not me. I take it you were able to log in, though?

Yeah, that blip happens occasionally. Sorry for the inconvenience. It's a result of nearing the bandwidth for server requests. Obviously, we don't do that often on this forum, but if we hit a confluence of bots, that might trigger it.

Please keep me posted about these. They don't always get logged in the admin error log, so it's good to have another source to keep an eye on this. If the problem gets annoying, I can contact our host to see if we can tweak things. :-)

Hey Elaine, I wasn't able to log in but it worked when I came back from work a few hours later. :)

Ok Baker, I will let you know if that happens again.

Thank you admins.

I'm repeatedly getting this error tonight. It took 5 tries to load just this page.


Same error as Athena. I looked at it says just 6 are online.

Thanks for the info. This is looking like one of those annoying random problems. Please keep letting me know when it happens: the more data we have, the more likely we are to understand what is going wrong.

It took about seven tries to get the post above posted. It took forever to think about whether it would work or not.
