A few of my sites are down and all with the same error:


"The****MySQL****server****is****currently****offline


Error while connecting to MySQL: Cpanel::DBI::Mysql connect('','root',...) failed: Too many connections at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/MysqlUtils/Connect.pm line 156. Error while connecting to MySQL: Cpanel::DBI::Mysql connect('','root',...) failed: Too many connections at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/MysqlUtils/Connect.pm line 156."

I have access to WHM, but know nothing about MySQL or what this means. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hello :)

Do you have root access to WHM or are you a reseller? If you have root access, please post the output from the following command:

Code:
cat /etc/my.cnf
Thank you.
