    Hello All :)

    This is my first post in this great community !! Sorry for my english.

    I send this topic for problems that I have in my mysql server that I use to use databases in all my servers.

    Today I recive this error in one of my sites:

    Warning: mysql_connect(): Host '' is blocked because of

    many connection errors. Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'

    Mysql server blocked all conecctions for one of my host for too many connections.

    My question is, I have possibite to put can use more connections or configure mysql to accept ilimitate connections to mysql for all servers?

    I wait responses. Thanks for your help!

    Better late than never :)

    You have a mysql config file in /etc/my.cnf
    You can put a lot of stuff in there, just search for it.

    About connections you can set:

    max_user_connections = 100
    max_connections = 600

    This is what I have on one server.
    On another server I have max_user set to just 30, it depends on how
    much your individual users need it and how it affect your server and load.

    max_user is the amount of connections a user can have
    max_connections means the amount of connections everybody together can have
