Post by COKEDUDE »

Could anyone tell me what the connection limit of forum is. I get this message quite often.

It is more likely (if it is not a problem that is affecting everyone visiting the site), that your problem is the quality of your ISP/Internet connection
--it is also likely to happen more often with wireless connections than wired connections, due to the nature of a wireless connection method (which connects/disconnects, depending on signal qualities and reception strength (# of bars showing is a rough measure)

And your point is what, that a web site has limited resources available for users?

Or that some users might be swamping a web site, by opening too many connections, in an attempt to speedup their web browsers at the expense of everyone else using that web site ?

I have the same message but only at night, sometimes to two hours of the morning, sometimes 4am, sometimes midnight ... always at night, never before or during the day. And it's the only site like this! I never had some problems with another site...

P.S.= I have a wired connection.

If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.

I get it more than I don't get it!
My wired connection and ISP are good enough for every where else on the planet.
Something wrong ...are the servers running on mint?
I've installed mint and cannot get any downloads or updates.
I think I'll go back to jaunty jackalope that was problem free and I didn't have to visit this broken unresponsive forum. :|

It's unlikely to be a problem with anything except the web host. Look at the error, the MySQL database won't accept any more connections. There's no problem connecting with the web server or you'd have seen a browser error page instead of one generated by the forum.

That's a database error directly reported from the forum. How could it possibly be his ISP? :roll:

Not ISP, but the company providing web hosting. (or whoever is responsible for the database).

Yeah, there is a bug report in with phpBB for it: http://www.phpbb.com/bugs/phpbb3/ticket ... t_id=20955

Seems to be a web host issue?

Well in that case there is nothing this forum maintainers can do short of migrating to another forum or waiting until this bug is solved.

I don't know - but Clem wrote a cron script to reload the database hourly and to throw out a notification email to both he and I if it failed to reload,that was applied on Wednesday morning and it seems to have solved the problem

Whatever Clem did, tell him not to touch it anymore in case it breaks :)
