SMF or Fast-hosts Caused the Error

Spent a lot of time over the last few days trying to get an SMF database back (religion and Ethics Forum). This has happened before, it all starts with an Apache error on trying to log in to the database (phph myadmin) I get max number of connections exceeded error message.

Last time I got around this by creating another database user and repairing some of the tables and getting Fast Hosts to clear the connections. This time though that is not working and it takes ages to type phrases into google and stare at pages for ten minutes only to decide the issue being discussed is not relevant to my issue.

Time gets eaten up fast and frustration starts to kick in, so much so I've called time on the issue for now.
