I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
I usually get that error, but as soon as I hit refresh, it goes away!..
I wouldn't call that to be the solution to the problem.
Ask your iPage hosting provider how many mysql connections your iPage hosting package is allowed. If it's a high number (200?) and you definitely know that you don't have 200 simultaneous users online, then don't believe that 200 figure is for you only, but as a total value for those on a shared server..
Your options are then to move to a better iPage hosting package with less people sharing a server, or even better (and should be a requirement for an ecommerce site) to move to a dedicated server where you are the only one on the server...
Interesting & thanks for the tip! I'll have to check that out as well!.
Thanks a bunch!..
Cheers people for the quick response..
Im currently on a webfusion package on a shared server. The sites fairly small in size really it has currently about 100 or so customers but I would never say half in a quarter are on it at a time..
Is there anyway I can backup my database so I dont loose any of the store design or products?..
If you have access to phpmyadmin that is very easy.
Just select export from the database mainpage in phpmyadmin.
One thing alot of "budget" host do it limit the number of connect excessivly on share servers to make up for the lack of "horsepower" in their box..... keep that in mind, in iPage hosting price IS NOT everything.....
When ever I try and get to my iPage site it says.
Warning: Too many connections in /home/jltcompute/public_html/catalog/includes/functions/database.php on line 19 Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Too many connections in /home/jltcompute/public_html/catalog/includes/functions/database.php on line 19 Unable to connect to database server!.
This is a live iPage site and I need to get it back up asap, can anyone help?.
The link is here.
I would be thankful for any help..
You need to get in contact with your iPage hosting provider about that problem..
As the error message states, your MySQL server cannot handle the amount of connections your iPage site is generating. The only solution here is to move to a better iPage hosting package/provider...
