I just implemented silverstripe about two weeks ago and have been experiencing issues where the CMS hangs for awhile until I restart Apache, then everything goes back to normal. I had the hosting company take a look at the system logs and they didn't find anything. I had them send me an alert when the server utilization goes up and checked out the site while the CMS was hanging and got this error:
FATAL ERROR: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Too many connections
At line 21 in /usr/web/www.nyfa.com/nyfa/film-school/sapphire/core/model/MySQLDatabase.php
I cannot seem to figure out the problem because I'm not an experienced PHP developer nor a network engineer. Has anyone seen a similar issue? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
