Site Stuff: Technical Difficulties

Still fixing stuff!

Stuff is Broken! I’m Trying to Fix it! Ugh!

Edit 1: Hey y’all, the forum is working again. WHEW. Thanks to the support folks at Dreamhost, they were able to clear the existing SQL database connections — why the forum was using so many I dunno — but it’s all right as rain now. Thanks again for your patience. :)

Hey y’all, I dunno if you’ve noticed, but I’m having some technical difficulties of late. First, the site was down for a while last night because, for some reason, the DNS server info I’d set up through CloudFlare was no longer working, so I reverted back to the Dreamhost DNS and we’re up again. Whew.

Now, however, the forums are down for some reason. I keep getting this error:

1203 – User already has more than ‘max_user_connections’ active connections

And I’m currently working with my host to get it fixed, which hopefully will be soon. I’ve no idea why the forum is causing this problem, as honestly it’s not THAT active (my fault, totally…), but still, it’s very weird.

Regardless, thanks for your patience during all this folks. I’ll keep y’all updated as to what’s going on.

    Possibly you need to turn off persistent connections in php.

      Welcome to the blog Harley! And uh…who the what now? ;) How do I do that, or check for that, if I may ask?

      • Harley says:

        It’s possibly a setting in the forum software you use. Your host might be able to help you with it.
        Btw… I like your blog – although I would like to see more reviews of space games :)

          I’ll take a look, thanks! And might I ask what you mean by more reviews of space games? I thought that’s kinda what I was doing. :)

          • Harley says:

            Yes I guess that was probably the wrong terminology… I’d like to see more abstract articles – things like ‘What I think makes a great space game’ and stuff like that.

              You know Harley, that’s a good point. I’ve gotten so mired in reviews and previews and such that I’ve mostly forgotten about op-eds. Thank you for bringing it up, now I’ll come up with some ideas for some — including yours, if you don’t mind me stealing it — and will start doing more regular op-eds. :)

Chime In!
