MYsql Warning - Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't create a new thread (errno 35); if you are not out of available memory, you can consult the manual for a possible OS-dependent bug in

Hi Experts,

We have a website (jarrow.com) which runs perfectly fine about 90% of the time, the other 10% is when we get this nasty error:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't create a new thread (errno 35); if you are not out of available memory, you can consult the manual for a possible OS-dependent bug in

We have a Virtual Provate Hosting through Verio's, and several support calls later, they say it's due to us going over the processes limit allowed to our account. I'm not sure if that's true or not.

Any one here more familiar with virtual private server hosting? or mroe specifically with verio's? Any help would be appreciated since we're not sure that this error really means or what is causing it.

We also never get this error while developing.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I have no experience with this company,

However this error generally occurs when the server's operating system allows no more tcp-ip connections to it.  It is probably not a mysql error itself - as if you had too many connections to mysql you would get a different error (about simultanious users) - now I do not know how many people are online at one time with this company but it is unlikley to be processors - ie I had this problem with a FreeBSD server that supposedly could handle up to 500 - 1000 simultanioius connections - but in reality it turned out to be around 250 - and any connections after that received this error.

This is notoriously hard to reproduce as you need many connections to be able to do it.

I'm not sure if this has helped - but it is unlikley to be a processor issue and more likley to be an OS one.
