Hey all, im a little confused as to what this error message is, im new to MySQL and a little unaware of error messages.

Warning: mysql_connect(): Too many connections in /home/fhlinux218/s/shoutbox.newbiestyle.co.uk/user/htdocs/database/setUp.php on line 2

I understand quite obviouslly there's too many connections, but why, or where?
My website is really new and i very much doubt that it's bandwith problems, plus i think my database hosting is unlimited bandwith.

Please help. Cheers.

This is usually caused by a combination of (a) a long timeout on PHP scripts that end up "sleeping" and (b) persistent connections that are never closed. It's unlikely that the default value of 100 is too small, given what you describe.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
