XF 1.3 An unexpected database error occurred.

So this morning when I loaded up my site I get this message, when I view the page source:

An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.
<!-- Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.
Was wondering what this is and how to fix it. Thanks.

This page seems to imply that it's related to your server being out of dynamic ports, which would indicate a ton of connections happening. It may clear itself over time, otherwise you likely need to contact your host.
