Database Error w/Bluehost (2 posts)

    My blog at <PepinHazan.com/blogs> is hosted by Bluehost.com. I haven't edited any configuration files lately. I installed Coppermine Photo Gallery and PunBB today. However, they are on a separate MySQL database than WordPress. When I tried to post something today, I got this error:

    "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/pepinhaz/public_html/blogs/wp-content/themes/landzilla-1_2/index.php:9) in /home/pepinhaz/public_html/blogs/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 304
    WordPress
    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."

    I emailed Bluehost a few minutes ago, but until they respond, are there any suggestions on how to fix this problem? (as far as I know, all of my files are correctly configured)

    * 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?

    If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.

    Your database server was temporarily down. If its still down, contact your host and inform them that its down.
