    Thanks, Luhmann. I have occasionally been flooded with spam (who hasn't?), but nothing recently that would account for this.

    And thanks to everyone here for help & advice.

    We've opened up a TotalChoice Hosting account, and right now I'm trying to figure out how to transfer the blog according to the instructions Macmanx linked to. I'll probably be back asking for help with that, but I'm going to try to do it myself first.

    I would have emailed you, but I couldn't find your email address. :-)

    I'm using the instructions for restoring the database found here and here. However, when I tell phpmyadmin to upload the database from my hard drive, I alwasy get this error:

    'Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 300 seconds exceeded in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/libraries/read_dump.lib.php on line 91'

    This happens even though the file size (27993 KB) doesn't exceed the "maximum file size" stated by phpmyadmin (51,200 KB).

    Is there any alternative way of restoring all the old posts and comments from my previous server?

    Has this issue/or knowledge of what happened with Lunarpages been solved?

    Reason is I have two sites that are on Lunarpages (using wp) and are about to expire and If there are still Lunarpages issues then I will def, move to another host

    Make sure your host is running the latest version of MySQL 4.1x . I believe there were issues w.r.t. max_connections in some of the ealier releases.

    I encountered the problem when upgrading to phpMyAdmin version 2.7.0-pl1 on my test server. As soon as I examined a WordPress DB using this version of phpMyAdmin, for some reason threads associated with the WP database connection users started to be spawned by the bucketful. Even though there is supposed to be always one connection reserved for the root user, I couldn't log on at the MySQL console with a "max_connections for user" error. A reboot of the server did not clear the connections - and none of my applications could connect to MySQL.

    I amended the max_connections value in the INNODB section from 0 to 800 (see below) and restarted MySQL - et voila! Everything back to normal

    I've finally got my reason to upgrade to 5 I think , lol.

    Relevant section from Mysql my.ini file:

    # Number of threads allowed inside the InnoDB kernel. The optimal value
    # depends highly on the application, hardware as well as the OS
    # scheduler properties. A too high value may lead to thread thrashing.
    #The maximum number of active connections for a single user (0 = no limit).
    #note from Sokrates: changed above value to 800
