The correct forum for this post this is the PHPFreaks.com Questions, Comments, & Suggestions forum. That si forum your report any problems with forum/site you are having.

However for the error you're getting is where we get so much traffic our database runs out of connections to give out.

Sounds like a job for an enterprise solution... Up steps Oracle :)

Advice to MySQL users: Get phpMyAdmin and test your queries work there first, take half the hassle out of diagnosis, also check the reserved words list.

I have contacted the owners of the server and they are looking into it.  It seems we're getting too big for our britches.  ;)

EDIT: As a side note, please do NOT use all caps for thread titles.  It is against the rules and this is your last warning.

Please note, we've made some server settings changes and things should work a little more smoothly now.  Unforunately with the popularity of the site, we get TONS of bots and leaches "borrowing" content from the site, which eats up the available connections.  That's why you were seeing what you were.

You could make an anti-leech system.

But in some respects, we want the leeches.  It helps our popularity and gets our content out there.
