In which FAQ? Sure you had a look at the correct one? vpopmails FAQ
will, for obvious reasons, not list MySQL-FAQ-items.

Quite clear error message.

Maybe because it couldn't figure out the database already exists (due
to max_connections error)?

I'd guess.

Ask your database who keeps all those connections open. We can't tell
from here.
Solve the cause of "too many connections" or increase the limit and
see if vpopmail still tries to create the database. Than you and us
don't need to guess in the wild, but know for sure.
