Support Requests / what's wrong with the server?
August 09, 2006, 10:20:36 AM
i have a php based forum installed on my account
recently i've occasionally been receiving such messages when trying to access my forum:

QuoteConnect(0) to MySQL (localhost,nightshade) failed

The URL Is:

MySQL Server Error:
Too many connections ( 1040 )

i guess it's not my forum's problem, as today when i try to log into this support forum i got this message several times too:
QuoteConnection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

so what's wrong? and is this fixable in the future? thanks for attention.
thanks pythonepoole and webzone! changing to 664 worked!
i was trying to chmod userglobal.php before, but seems to be working on the wrong file.
the popen and pclose fuctions that freepgs just blocked seems to have caused a minor problem on my site, which hosts a php forum. no fatal damage, but lines of error messages kept popping up, like
"Warning: fopen(/fpgs/fpgshttpd/nightmemo/bbs/data/bbscache/online.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /fpgs/fpgshttpd/nightmemo/bbs/require/userglobal.php on line 112"
and so on...
it kind of bothers me, so i'm thinking of using a second forum program instead of the current one, which doesn't use these functions.
anyone has an idea which forums does not use the functions that freepgs have blocked?
thanks a lot.
