That was odd. For the past two days, posting has been closed down here due to “Got an error: Bad ObjectDriver config: Connection error: Too many connections.” I don’t know what that means, but it kept me from posting yesterday.

  1. If it just went away after a while, I’d say it was more likely to be something being done to your database than the database itself. Were you getting an unusually high number of unwelcome comments or trackback pings, or does your MT Activity Log show a trillion searches from someone attacking the search script?

    If it was comments (trackback is, sadly, disabled), the comments themselves didn’t get through. When the siege was over, I had only a couple more comments than when it began.
