General Error Message

Post by Pigglet » Fri Mar 06, 2009 10:25 pm

Hi all,

Has anyone else been getting an error message when trying to log onto PP.

This has happen before to me a few weeks ago then seemed to get better. It happened again today when I was trying to get my lunch time PP fix!

This is what it said:

GENERAL ERROR
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]
User johigh_phpb2 has already more than 'max_user_connections' active connections [1203]
An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

No I didn't memorise that! (good old copy and paste) :D

Seems OK now. It keeps happening, then the web host sorts it out, then it happens again. :evil:

When did you last get it? I haven't seen it for ages, definitely not since last time they sorted it out. Have you seen it in the last week?

Yea I've seen in within the last week. I don't know when I think it was earlier in the week. I get it about once every week/2 weeks.

If it keeps happening, and the host can't/won't stop it from happening permanently, then I'll just have to move again. Don't really want to resort to that because they've been really good up to now. I've had less problems with this host than any other, but they do seem to have changed things recently because there are other things that have become awkward (not stuff that affects the forums).

Yes please, post here when you see the ones that don't last long. I only know about the ones that last ages because that's when I have to get the host to sort it out - not everyone sees the short random ones. Thanks :D

I had the error message this morning for at least 2 hours; I only started checking around 8am so I don't know if it was on earlier.

I tend to find I don't see if for a while and then all of a sudden I get it loads.

it was on all day and all night, for me at least. I'm guessing for everyone though because there weren't many new posts.
