I'm using a fresh WP installation (2.3.2) with Sandbox / MooPoint theme and the following plugins: Akismet, GeneralStats, SuscribeToComments, WP-Ban, WP-Footnotes. Running with a MySQL 5.0 database.
Now, something odd happened today after installing GeneralStats. I was opening a template file and, all of a sudden, WP stated a database connection error. After 10 seconds the connection came back and everything seemed fine (I could open and save template files). Then happend again when opening functions.php. And then again, after a handful of seconds, reverted.
What could be the cause of such random MySQL connection error?
