    I can't log into my cpanel, it's really sluggish and none of my websites come up. I keep getting a "Error establishing a database connection" error. Tech support seems to be swamped with other problems.

    I'm guessing they're having serious issues today.

    Finally got tech support. I'm on a shared server and someone was overloading it. The tech told me they shut down this other person and I'm now back up and running. He also told me that they normally detect server overloads within 15 minutes and take appropriate action.

    Fair enough and I wasn't down for too long.
