Did my best to kill the forum

OK, not intentionally, but I just got this error message while trying to open a PM:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Too many connections in /.../mysql.php on line 48

Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /.../mysql.php on line 330

Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /.../mysql4.php on line 331
phpBB : Critical Error

Could not connect to the database

(Edit by JT:- Thanks for error messages. Edited for specifics to prevent hakers.)

then when I reloaded the main page I had to login in again but it said I'd read the PM.

Sorry for posting in separate messages but I thought it would be clearer.

Seems to be working ok now. Others have reported forum slow today, maybe it's just Mondays.

I just thought Julian should see the error messages it's giving out so that he's aware of what's going on

These are generally error messages thrown out by the forum server when incoming/outgoing traffic is exceptionally heavy and it is having problems coping with it all !
