Hi @sabrinacara98, welcome to Trac!

Trac is for the development of the WordPress Core software, whereas you need some support.

In this case, the intermittent error is likely being caused by more connections than the "max_user_connections" setting used by your website host. This might be caused by a plugin, theme, or a setting set by your web host.

You can get some tracking down the cause of the issue by posting about your problem on the support forums.

As this ticket is not about development of the WordPress Core software, and the discussion should be on the support forums, I'll close this ticket as invalid.

Best of luck!
