I was working on my site overnight which was fine, but this morning when I try to access it I am getting the following error messages stopping the site from running.

PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1040] Too many connections in lock_may_be_available() (line 165 of /home/sites/domain/path/includes/lock.inc).

Aargh, please help.

Weird, the moment I posted this it came back to life. As anybody experienced this before?

Yeah i just had the same thing happen. hopefully it moves on soon. I think its because something wasn't loading since my internet is crap and i kept reloading the page so it overloaded. i guess it will just pass.

this is a mysql error - it means that your site has breached the max allowed consecutive mysql connections.

If you are on a shared hots it could be global setting - if you have access you can up it.



It could be script that is opening connections and not closing them afterwards. Hard to say.
