Every once in a while I get an error on my site. Can anyone tell me what is causing this and how I might be able to prevent it? Thanks.

You can try asking your host to increase the limit, but if it's due to other users on the same server or a limit cap, as mentioned, there's not much you can do other than to switch servers/packages/hosts.

To increase the max connections settings in my.cnf (the SQL configuration file).
max_connections = XXX where XXX is a reasonable # of connections (I use 500 which is overkill, but my server has more than adequate memory).
