Problem solved.

As usually it was my mistake.

In the content management system that I used, I set the connection to 
the database to be presistent or pooling. Something like that.

Once I set it back to normal, that is not to have persistent 
connections, all was solved.

It seems that there was too many connections and it just did not allow 
any more connections.

Sorry to have troubled everyone. It was my mistake. It was warned in the 
documentation in the CMS.

I found the problem by using the following command.

# mysqladmin -u root -ppassword processlist

Thanks to everyone who helped.
