A new database problem with the "confluence" project

“Unable to connect to database. Please try again later. 1040”

More details: The following PHP command - which used to work OK, is now failing:

where ‘password’ is the (string) password that we use to connect to the database.

After this call,

  • mysqli_connect_error()

returns: “Too many connections”

So the problem appears to be with the database server: confluence-mysql1.int.ibiblio.org

Thank you for fixing the problem. (It would be nice to get an explanation of what went wrong, however…)
