MySQL Database Connection Limits

January 16th, 2010 allows a maximum of 20 simultaneous MySQL connections. This limit is per cPanel account.

The 20 simultaneous database connections should be sufficient. Most database connections open and close within a fraction of a second. Example: A forum with 400 active members will rarely hit this 20 simultaneous connections.

If a website does cross the limit, they will see a Service Temporarily Unavailable page. The SQL server will timeout after 15 to 30 seconds of inactivity.
