SQL Errors on VPS

Would anyone please give me an idea why I might be having a rash of SQL errors on my server as:

Can’t contact the database server: User already has more than ‘max_user_connections’ active connections

This issue appears on and off through the day. I am not using a VPS for the database.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Elle… We have put in a ticket which is: 5863946

Thank you in advance!

Awesome, thanks! I see that your ticket was answered a couple hours ago. To reiterate our tech’s response, it seems a spam-filled database was running large queries on your MySQL server. Our admins have been working on stopping that user’s activity. If you continue to run into any issues, please don’t hesitate to reply directly to our email.

Thanks so much for your patience and cooperation!

Thank you Elle!
