    ------------------------
    Thank you for contacting us.

    You are trying to run a site that is receiving an enormous amount of traffic.
    The Message "Web Server: Too many connections! " that you are seeing is triggered by the automatic that is preventing your sites from overloading the server. If you see this message then most probably your sites are not suitable for a shared hosting account.
    Your site is being hosted currently on the shared hosting platform which imposes some limitations on the load that your site can exercise on the platform.
    As per our ToS (Terms of Services):
    The Limitations on the Apache web server are:
    - Not more than 40 concurrent (simultaneous) connections originating from one IP
    (it doesn’t matter if a domain or subdomain is served)
    - Not more than 40 concurrent (simultaneous) connections towards single vHost
    (Website - domain or subdomain)
    Please note that a single connection to your website usually takes not more than 1-2 seconds and lasts only for the loading time of your web site and not the actual viewing of the page.
    If you wish to host such a heavily loaded website with us without these problems we strongly recommend that you upgrade your account to our VPS (Virtual Private Servers) plans that will offer more performance and scalability for you.

    Feel free to reopen this ticket in case you have more questions or you need further assistance. Thank you for choosing our services.
    -------------------

    this start happening after getting a lot of spam comments in 1 day i might have 400-500 pending comment 100-200 might be from real visitors

    leadhoster suggest me to get a vps but i dont know how it work i mean im really a newbie in IM and its just my website goes viral

    what should i do? aside from getting vps is there any other way? + it cost more i just have pro plan in leadhoster with 60gb diskspace and 1t traffic

    Hi Ryan, I had bluehost as my hosting and had to move to hostgator because of similar problems. There are memory settings that can be changed to allow more user connections that seem to be hitting a memory limit. Too many connections point that way. Default mem settings seem to be 64 mb on some hosts and this may help to ask them to increase to 128 mb on the server side to allow for more. You may hit that limit again in about 1-2 months if traffic grows so be ready for the vps move.
    I have a vps level 7 and I may be moving to a dedicated server as this next vps level and the ded are priced very close.

    Do not use hotlink protection if they suggest it, you will probably lose 98% of your traffic. I say to use w3 total cache plugin right away and this will reduce the server load as well. I have 2 million impressions on my whole account and this plugin has helped me. I hope my tips may help...

    Although i'm sure a lot of people here would be willing to help for a fee, your provider would probably be willing to set your VPS up for you if you're willing to upgrade to a VPS.

    Submit a ticket, and see if they'd be willing to since they're 'forcing' you to upgrade.

    If they aren't willing to help you, shoot me a PM, and i'll see if I can't help you through it.

    Have you installed any caching plugins like W3 Total Cache or WP Super Cache? Although it won't directly help you with your connection problems your pages will load quicker and put less load on your host. It may be enough to get you off the radar.

    That's a good start, but you really need to get yourself a dedicated server. At the very least get a decent VPS and have them set it up to be able to handle the traffic. WP blogs absolutely rinse space when they get traffic.

    You may be at the level where you will need to upgrade per meathead's suggestion. The tips I gave may hold your traffic for a short time while you consider your next line of attack to handle the server load.
    Use the following settings or in other words activate these..
    Page Cache:
    Minify:
    Database Cache:
    Object Cache:
    Browser Cache:

    This should help short term and is only a band-aid for the time being. I have tried those other cache plugins and did not get any help, This is the only one that worked.
    As for vps, you may need a level 3 to start for minimum. I would look at the memory allotment for each and ask or post some of that info here to get an opinion from the folks here.

    Your only solution to your problem is to either get a very good VPS or go for a dedicated server... I think that all hosting on a shared server, they only allow 25 simultaneous connections to the database at one time and you seem to be exceeding this by quite alot....

    Ok, I went to some of my really old trouble tickets and found a setting that you will need to add after they increase the wordpress mem limits on the server side.
    This setting should be added via ftp..


    add this to wp-config for the memory issue

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');

    copy/paste that exactly as see it. Open this file config via ftp, click view or edit, paste that and then save. It should help no matter what you do for hosting level.

    Congrats - should solve the problem.

    So the next (and only important) question is, are you making money with all this traffic? :cool:

    Congratulation for your high traffic..
    I was facing the same problem like you, I try use cache system like hyper cache, db cache reloaded, but still I got too many visitor for shared hosting hostgator, more than 50k a day, then I move to vps, learning how to install web server, learn to use lighttpd to replace apache, then I move to dedicated.
    More problem you get, more experience you gain.

    So this website is making 10k/month and you couldn't afford getting the dedicated server for it in the first place?
