Hi All,

Posted this on FileMaker Techtalk a few days ago and did not get a response.
Hoping that there is someone here who has a thought on how to fix...

Client is running FileMaker Server Advanced 9.0v3 on an xServe running
10.4.10 and getting the message ³956 Maximum number of database sessions
exceeded (returned only by web-published databases)²

Client has gotten this message with increasing frequency and on testing was
not able to connect at a low usage time of day.

[begin excerpt]
There is a problem with the FMPRO web client. The Web Client said: Error
Code 956 occurred on page index.php on Tue, 11 Nov 2008 12:40:12 -0500 for
ClientsDatabase.fp7, login.
[end excerpt]

The web publishing is set to allow 100 connections and there are probably 2
or 3 real connections at a time.

Running fx.php latest version.

The entire web publishing machine was restarted 1.5 weeks ago.

The web publishing and the FileMaker serving is from the same machine.

The web publishing was working fine for more than 6 months and there have
been no changes to the hardware or software.

I did not find a resolution to the 956 error in my archives of various
listServe emails or through Google serve.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

All the best,

Tony White
