We’re seeing similar database connection errors this morning across our systems. We’re working with Rackspace to determine the cause of the issue and resolve it ASAP. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take a look.
UPDATE 6:30AM CDT: Rackspace is repairing a sync issue between the database servers. This is causing the current connection issues for sites. We don’t have an ETA for how long this should last, but we’ll update you when we know more.
UPDATE 6:45AM CDT: We’re expecting things to be more stable now and for sites to be responding. If you’re still expericing issues, please let us know.
