Frequent SQL error 1226 'user **** has exceeded the 'max_user_connections' resource (current value 30)'

  • Hello,

    Each concurrent request hitting your site consumes one connection to the database server. If you have a larger number of concurrent visitors or make use of plugins that dispatch a large number of requests, then it could happen that there are too many in-flight requests, consuming all connections granted by your webhost. This can be even worse on slower hosts, because the longer it takes to process a request, the longer this connection slot is taken up.

  • Splinter Better you move out of Godaddy. I have seen many sites hosted with Godaddy and face resource issues. You have a site with good amount of traffic so you need a better host.
