When I try to access the phpfreaks forums I get this error:

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

Other places it says that there are too many connections to the database. Have other people had this problem when accessing phpfreaks.com?

Yes, I've been getting the error too.  It's being looked into.

I haven't, but I guess the server load was too high when you recieved that error.

It just means many people are accessing the DB at one time.  If memory serves, I think a pconnect is used on SMF and it times out and if to many connections are opened, and it reaches the limit set on the server, it will show that answer to everyone who dosn't already "own" a connection to the server already.
