Glad to hear that, but it seems unlikely, to me.
Certain things, like the query cache, index cache, etc. are allocated once, at startup.
Those are fixed memory requirements. Other things, like read buffers, sort buffers and the
like get allocated every time a client connects. Those are dynamic memory requirements,
and the amount they use increases linearly with the number of concurrent connections you
Thus, increasing the max connections can never *reduce* your memory requirements - only
potentially allow *more* memory to be allocated. I still suspect that you ran out of
memory because you had a sudden influx of connections; and now that you've increased the
max connections you'll run out of memory even faster next time that occurs.
If it works now, it works; but keep that in the back of your mind somewhere for next time
you see it occur :-)
