the answer lies within one of our admins, Whom had interesting activity on their account. First, The name was changed to "Australian Transport Discussion Board!" and second, the site went down. I think they are both conjoined, But i cant be sure.

The site has not been down, so I am not sure of the reason.

"Too many connections" could be related to a sort of Distributed Denial of Service by sending a stupidly high number of requests or information to the site itself?

NO the site was not down but Andrew like myself does not know the reason for some members encountering this problem.

It seems that some disgruntled members who have the ability to do so have probably hacked the site and changed a few things around, including the membership statuses of some people on the forum.

Allow me to rephrase that.... You aren't not sure if the site was down via SQL. The phpBB bit may have been up.

We had the all time classic SQL errors.
