    Although I've never gotten that type of msg. it would seem that Cpanel has done some basic Administration for you.

    As every Server has a default limit for maximum connections at one time, it would seem yours was reached. In order to allow more connections the &MaxClient& limit had to be increased -- else visitors to any site on the Server would receive an error msg. -- &Temporaily Overloaded& or something similar.

    Not being aware of this feature, I am glad to hear it is there and results are sent, so a person knows what's going on.

    I have received this on occasion from several of our servers. Check your server logs for a 'mini' attack (for lack of a better word). We've seen these on several servers. Will probably look something like:

    Or it could be related to this, which I don't think has anything to do with Windows:

    There have been several interesting posts about this on these forums.
