too many connections (yeah what ever!)

Can anyone give me some clue as to why my site is saying this right now:


Critical error – bailing out

Could not connect to database-server (Too many connections, mysql_connect() [<a href='http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-connect.php'>function.mysql-connect.php</a>]: Too many connections)



I have done a google search to find out what the problem is but have found no reasonable answers considering my site has like 6 members right now so how could it have too many database connections.

It's a per-server limit, not a per-site limit, have a chat with your web host.


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Does that mean that there are too many sites being run on one server then?

I have at the most like 3 people on-line at one time, that's pretty scary, my site already runs like a 3 legged Tortoise as it is, typical.  :(

Hi Petrikuhr,

I've just visited your site and found it to be pretty snappy!
Screen changes were immediate from zone to zone.
Overall, it runs faster than my own site.:cool:

Really, on average the pages take around 2-4 seconds to load for me, sometimes they can take as long as 5-8 seconds to load. People just wont wait for pages to load that long, I know I don't, if a sites pages take too long I just move on. Perhaps it's just me expecting too much.

I'm not kidding you, Petrikurh!

See Jing movie:
If you notice any delay, it probably has more to do with me not clicking fast enough on a button, lol:lol:

Sorry about that we had a temporary outage but we are all good now. My cell phone woke me up at 3:45….which is kind of odd because I am usually still awake lol But I got up and got right on it.

I am not sure why your site is slow for you, all of the sites that are with me run real fast for me like in Jeans Video.

I haven't noticed any slowness at all. The "too many db connections" could be caused by search bots indexing your site since it's new.

I've had that same error a few times but it's usually only for a few minutes.

Oddly Jean my site is still fairly slow for me as you can see: 2012-03-25_0817 - Petrikuhr's library
It isn't being horribly slow as it sometimes is, sometimes I just leave my own site as it's so slow and annoyes me!

Meybe it's a browser thing Brian or maybe it's just me, I don't know, that much I do know.

Yes, so I have been told but it doesn't change that my site is slow when I use it.



Anyway, the point to this topic was the error and the speed was a curious point not the issue.
