    I'm not very techy--please stay with me here!

    Tried viewing my blog online and came up with a 'error establishing database connection' error instead.

    Tried to log onto my dashboard and received 'One or more database tables are unavailable. The database may need to be repaired.'

    I click on 'repaired' and got 'To allow use of this page to automatically repair database problems, please add the following line to your wp-config.php file. Once this line is added to your config, reload this page.
    define('WP_ALLOW_REPAIR', true);

    So...my question is, how do I get access to my wp-config.php file if I can't get to my dashboard and am uncertain about my Database name or host? {I don't even know what version of wp I'm on...good grief.}

    You'll probably need to ask your hosting company for help - but this might also be useful:
