[Owasp-testing] OWASP Hosts it's DB on the same machine as the web server?

Seems the site is experiencing some issues this morning. What really caught my eye was the "... database server: Too many connections (127.0.0.1)" part. While the DB might not be exposed externally this is still contrary to what I believe most of us would suggest to our clients (i.e.: DB should not be the same machine as the WebServer. Due to single point of failure, etc.)

"OWASP has a problem

Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.
Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.

(Can't contact the database server: Too many connections (127.0.0.1))

You can try searching via Google in the meantime.
