DataBase Error Establishing Connection (3 posts)

    I was trying to resolve a problem on my server's Plesk Control Panel with my WP DB. I changed the name of the server and all hell broke loose. This is the error message I got:

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    Tell me what I need to do please.

    Thanks.
