I have a cakephp site which is experiencing some performance issues. Intermittently I see the following in my cake error logs:
'2017-07-31 12:22:46 Error: [PDOException] SQLSTATE  User ‘mydbname’ has exceeded the ‘max_user_connections’ resource (current value: 30)
Based on my understanding, cake should be doing the work of creating / terminating connections, so I’m not sure how to start troubleshooting / resolving this issue. Should I find a way to increase the max_user_connections? Why isn’t 1 connection enough? Should I manually close the db connections from my code?
I’m really not sure where to start. Any help at all will be GREATLY appreciated.
