Error Message

Any idea why this error message comes up, frequently, nowadays?  I can usually get in, after a few attempts, but never encountered this, in the past.

An error was encountered

Error: Unable to connect to MySQL and select database. MySQL reported: Too many connections.

Re: Error Message

I get it randomly too. I did email it to tyllyn, but haven't heard anything yet. I'll follow up on it.

Re: Error Message

I suspect the server that services this forum also services several others. When traffic on all of the forums reaches a certain point, the SQL server that services the database underneath this forum becomes overwhelmed and user requests are denied with that error message. Fixing that problem would likely be expensive, so we'll likely have to live with the occasional inconvenience. sad

Re: Error Message

Tyllyn is working to resolve this right now. So be forewarned that things may be "goofy" for awhile. That, I guess, is a technical term. tongue

Re: Error Message

This should be solved. He "upped the mysql connections from 100 to 200" . If you continue to get this error, just let me know please.

Re: Error Message

Interesting. And easier than I would have thought. But then, IT was never my specialty and my IT chops are getting older by the minute... Apparently, some forum on this server is getting a lot of traffic!

Re: Error Message

Still something going on.  I don't get the error message anymore, but the site takes forever to "load."  Have to try it several times to get on here.  Took me about five minutes, this time.

Yeah I've had that too, he's aware of this and will get to it shortly.  We'll get this figured out. smile

Re: Error Message

Not getting it on this site at all now.  Still get it some on others.  This site comes up quicker than most.  Using windows 7 with a quad processor my main problem is DSL is unavailable to me dial up is all I have and is so slow.  "LittleOldMan"sad

Re: Error Message

It could be an observational red herring, but the bottleneck appears to be at s31.sitemeter.com. My sessions spend a disproportional amount of time "waiting for s31.sitemeter.com".

Re: Error Message

I'll check that out, thanks. I think he's just running a crapload of stuff of the server.

Re: Error Message

Just had trouble getting on, again, at 1:01 p.m., EST.  Tried the URL exactly ten times before getting on.  Only took about 2 minutes, but if somebody isn't persistent they may think the site is inaccessible.

Re: Error Message

Thanks Ray. I'll forward this on to him, this is getting out of control. We got a handle on the massive spam registrations, we'll get this figured out. You're right, if someone is looking for something in particular it's going to look like we poofed. neutral

Re: Error Message

Four tries to get on, at 8:27 a.m., today.  Only took about 15 seconds, but, as I say, the error message came up the first three tries.
