Weird Error with MySQL Workbench

My test connection to my DO Droplet was verified but when I clicked okay and tried to run the connection I got an error. It said User ‘username’ has exceeded the ‘max_questions’ resource (current value:30). I have no idea what this means or how to etablish a connection from MySQL workbench to my DO droplet. Thanks.

Hello, @noahmcdonough

Could you please let me know if the database is busy at the moment? Are you expecting a lot of connections/queries at that time? The issue might be related with you exceeding the max_connections and not the max_questions

This is the reason why I’m asking if you’re expecting some MySQL activity at the moment as this might explain why you’re experiencing the issue at the moment.

Let me know how it goes.
