    Hi Arnan,

    I just purchased AdRotate Pro specifically for the geo-targeting feature. Everything seems to work fine, except when I actually enable geo-targeting. When I do enable it, I begin to get extremely frequent “Error establishing a connection to database” errors when browsing around my site. When I enable WordPress debug, I see a lot of MySql warnings stating that I have already reached the max_user_connections.

    I use Managed WordPress through GoDaddy – they do not allow me to increase this max_user_connections setting. I understand GoDaddy uses some form of caching on their end – I’m not sure if that might be causing an issue with the geo-targeting? Could you please advise?

    Sounds like you have insufficient hosting 🙁
    Try raising the max_user_connections or better yet, get hosting that doesn’t have a low limit for it.

    Has anyone else reported similar issues with Managed WordPress on GoDaddy? Are there any other possible alternatives at all?

    Managed WordPress hosting generally is underpowered and the user has no direct control over anything but plugin and theme activations.

    For any serious website it shouldn’t be considered.
    Self hosted/managed WordPress on any decent hosting is always better.

    (That’s not to say Managed WP hosting is always crap, but generally speaking it’s not very good either…)

    And no, I’m not aware of other people having issues with your kind of hosting on GoDaddy – But there are hundreds if not thousands of hosting packages all over, so changes someone has your exact hosting is not all that great.
    I know that WP Engines offering often has issues on their managed hosting stuff, too. With all kinds of plugins. Which I imagine is similar to what GoDaddy offers.
