    I haven't used my blog for about 3 months and am concerned to find that I cannot find the site or log in via WordPress.org.

    The message is HTTP 500 Internal Server Error Most likely causes:
    •The website is under maintenance.
    •The website has a programming error.

    my site is http://www.apple-orchards.org.uk
    My hosting account is paid up.

    I'm sure this is a very common thread on the forum but I would appreciate any help.

    Are you able to connect to the site via FTP?

    It's probably something corrupt with the WordPress installation. I would contact your Hosting provider and see if they have any working backups.

    When I try and access the site I receive "Error establishing a database connection", which generally means your database has not been linked to your site properly. So your trying to access your site, but it doesn't know which database to pull the data from.

    You'll most likely need to find your database name and login information through your host, and then open up wp-config.php via FTP and re-enter the connection details.
