What is the 'Too Many Connections' i keep getting ?
For those who experience the Too Many Connections error page.
Too Many Connections, also known as TMC, is caused when a server becomes a little overloaded. It's nothing bad; just the server trying to protect itself against a crash. When this happens, please do not keep refreshing your page, as this adds additional stress to the server, and forces the TMC page to keep displaying.
If you can manage to get to your site, or have contacts for your members, you can let them know about the TMC, and warn them not to refresh all the time. In this way, you can do your own little bit to bring the server back to normal.
Should TMC be experienced for 2-3 days consistantly, please post in the Support board. ProBoards admins will then monitor the situation, and if overload is deemed the cause, they will "load balance", shifting forums from one server to another to bring the TMC under control.
Please note, demanding a fix will do nothing. Circumstances must get to a certain point before it will be looked at.
This has been going on for about a week or more. It says to let them know about it so they can monitor the server.
