KO might've been tuning the database/forums. it occurs every once in a while.

Looks like KO needs to migrate the forums to a dedicated server.

No…A good shared hosting account will easily handle these forums…

I wonder what kind of limit is imposed on the max_connections for a user on site5.

The forums are not using much bandwidth or server resources - the host says it’s not my account but some other on the same server. They’re looking into it.

One of my reasons for using PunBB is that I don’t have to switch over to more expensive hosting as the site grows - it uses a lot less resources that the vBulleting and co.
