After a few weeks of working perfectly fine, a PHP website with a PostgreSQL backend stopped working and now only shows the following error:

Warning: pg_pconnect(): Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: FATAL: connection limit exceeded for non-superusers in <path>

I couldn't find a way around the issue as I can't connect to the DB myself through CLI or the web interface (for the same reasons). And I don't have the ability to restart the DB nor I have the Super User access to the DB server.

I would assume that the issue comes from this ill-behaved PHPH appliation with a PostgreSQL backend is not closing its connections to the DB. Or could it be another user on the same host that is hogging all connections to the DB?

Interesting, now the error went away and I didn't do anything

It looks like this may have been caused by another user on your shared server. If it happens again, please open an urgent support ticket so that we can look into the issue while it is happening. Thanks!
