Head over to for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

#47874 (In Topic #10435)

MySQL could not serve an ocPortal database request because a configured limit was exceeded.

How did this happen?

  • A database table contains a very large amount of data
  • The server is configured to have a very low limit

How do I fix it?

There is currently no straight-forward fix to this problem. It may be a bug, or it may be a server configuration problem. Make a judgement call whether to contact your web host or whether to post on the ocPortal forum. If you can afford to pay ocProducts can look into the problem under a commercial support arrangement (in which case, open a support ticket).

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 Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • 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 Composr 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.
