View Full Version : MySQL too many connections

About every 2 weeks the MySQL stops serving up connections to my web pages and they all hang. Support restarts the MySQL service and everything is fine. SInce I cannot see the database errologs I looked at the settings for wait_timeout and it is set to 28800secs (8hrs). seems high to keep inactive connections before closing them. anyone know how to reduce that setting? It also has max_connect_errors= 10 before locking out the host.
Hmm, the seetings didn't look right, here is what I've changed:
It should be fine now, I think. If it is not, you can contact the support team, we'll fix it :)
