XF 1.1 All of the sudden, a MySQL error

    All of the sudden, every page in my forum is giving the following error:
    No one was working on the database or making any changes. Is this something I need to worry about or is this just my server acting up temporarily?

    It was just the server having a moody moment. *phew*. That was creepy.

    You may have hit the max_connections setting of your MySQL server. It doesn't hurt to inspect and optimize my.ini ;)

    The max_connections limit error looks different (just saying max limit reached), that's why I worried here for a bit.
    I am on a shared host, so I have no control over the max MySQL connections limit.... Or did you mean something else?

    That error means the MySQL server was down. Maybe the server was being restarted. It's only a concern if the error persists in which case you need to contact your host. This is not a connection limit error.
