    MySQL has been set by your hosting provider to allow a maximum of connections at once to be open. Going over this it will return the error that has reached the max and won't open a new one. The error will disappear once users close connections (by parting the site).

    The best thing is to contact your hosting provider, request them at how high this is set and if they can raise it to prevent future errors and give more room for users to visit your web site.
