Congratulations Ivar! Almost 7000 posts. And, what is really great to see is all the pilgrims who remain members once they have done their camino. Helping the next generation of pilgrims is a great way of giving back.
Thank you Ivar, you certainly deserve the distinction of turning the santiago-today forum into one of the most useful forum, I had trouble logging in and Ivar guided me through to successful log-in. It is commendable as Ivar was replying to my query personally within hours. An interactive forum with a live, kind, and practical moderator is as or more important than being the largest, if you have unsure of the size you will be, if you are not already, the biggest pilgrim forum/group with your tender loving care.
Joe & Sue ...pilgrims to be in May from New Zealand
Pop the champagne, the santiago-today forum is now (as far as I know) the biggest pilgrim forum/group measured by number of members.
Congrats everyone, keep the questions, comments and experiences coming....
...but growing in popularity seems to have its dowsides, too. I get the following error messages every day now, several times per day. Maybe you need to reconfigure your mySQL and/or reboot your Windohs.
phpBB : Critical Error
Could not connect to the databasePHP Warning: mysql_pconnect(): User santiago@ has already more than 'max_user_connections' active connections in D:\webserver\santiago-today.com\www\board\db\mysql4.php on line 48 PHP Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in D:\webserver\santiago-today.com\www\board\db\mysql4.php on line 330 PHP Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in D:\webserver\santiago-today.com\www\board\db\mysql4.php on line 331
Regarding the error, I have seen it too... the problem seems to be that the site is on a shared server and they limit the number of connections to the database to 15 simultaneous connections.
I think the problem occurs when google crawls the site (it crawls the site with several different IP's at a time, and it crawls a lot of pages at a time as well)... I will try to restrict google to crawl that often, and see if this fixes it... if not I would have to move to a new and better server (and more expensive).
If anyone has any experience and advice, please contact me off the board.
Thank you for creating such a helpful and successful site. I would never have had the confidence to attempt the Camino without it. Like so many others, I'm now hooked! Last year I walked the Camino Frances from O Cebreiro. This year, I'm planning to walk the Camino Portugues.
Thank you Ivar and 'buen camino' to all felllow pilgrims.
Congratulations Ivar! :lol: I love this site - have now made it my home page and have learnt so much through reading the discussions each day. I can't wait to do my own camino and then come back here to share with others. I like the simple set out and ease of listings - very user friendly for me and again, thank you for setting this up for all of us in the little place we call the world. On sites like this it brings us all into one small back yard, sitting around the table, in discussion, accepting each other's differences of opinion......oh! if only the big wigs of the world could take note. :roll: cheers and thanks, Jane
