The issue is related to “Too many connections”. It seems that you have exceed mysql connection limit on the server. If you have root access of your server, you can edit mysql configuration file to increase mysql connection limit. Make sure you restart mysql service after editing mysql configuration file.

max_connections = 250

Set the appropriate limit.
