After upgrading to v3.3, error establishing a database connection (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I've recently done a manual upgrade and have accidentally deleted my wp-config.php file. So I created a new one and entered my db credentials. However, when I try to go to the wp-admin, I'm getting an error that says "Error establishing a database connection". I am pretty sure that the db name, username, and password are correct. I still can't login. :(

    Please help me. Thanks!

  2. Sounds like the db info you have is not the right one. I would go back to your cpanel and get the credentials. Your hosting provider can help you with that and depending who you are with, there's usually an easy way to reset the password.
