Foxy, I am getting the same message - could not connect with Chrome, but managed using Firefox :hmz:

The tech team are running / working in the background which is causing this - they are aware of the problem. It is intermittent and one needs to refresh a couple of times and the page will open/post go up.

Thanks DB for providing that information.This will definitely prevent me from making a Frisbee out of my iPad having just experienced problems with it whilst you were on leave.I thought it was playing up again and was kinda relieved to know that other peeps were experiencing the same type of problem.

The sql refers to the database server which stores all the forum data. That is looked at and updated by the forum web pages server.

The too many connections message from the database can be caused by

literally too many people with active open sanparks web pages or
if the sql database to web server links are not fat enough.

It can also be caused by mischief makers running a denial of service attack by say pretending to logon or simply scanning the forum links from several places simultaneously.

No doubt the technical team will determine the problem but in the mean time if a button generates that message press the reload icon and your browser will try again... but before you do that count to ten slowly :|

Thanks DB (and others) for the explanation., I have been gettting the Error message now and again on my computer, but not on my I-phone. Wonders of modern science! I just ignored it and tried again and all OK, most times. Thanks to the HO folk for trying to sort it out.

Glad I'm not the only one with the problem.

I got the "error: too many connections" several times the last two weeks or so. I'm using Chrome.
