Hi,

Hmm, very strange. First off, what type of server and database are you using, and are you on a shared or dedicated server?

If you are on a shared server, it could be that someone else on the server is using up all the connections, so when you need it there are none left.

Keeping multiple browsers open does not keep a database connection open. Unless you are under mod_perl or SpeedyCGI, a database connection is only open while the page is loading, as soon as the page is loaded, the database connection is closed. MySQL defaults to allow at least 250 connections I believe.

Hope this helps,

Alex
