I have been having a big issue for quite some time now. At completely random times, I get the "Error establishing a database connection" message only when browsing the forum on our website. All other areas of the website will never produce this message. It's only when browsing the forums and it's completely random as to when it happens.
I contacted our partners at RackSpace / Liquid Web and they said something along the lines of there are too many queries to the DB that are left open. We've been using Simple:Press for 5 years and for 4 years we didn't have a single problem but for the past year we have and it's getting worse.
Is there anything that you can suggest for us to resolve this? Have you had any reports of this before?
If you can offer any advice I would appreciate it.
