    My wordpress is install for a long time.
    This morning i was posting something and suddently i get this :

    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.
    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.

    Here is my site http://jelto.free.fr
    (sorry for my english, i'm french!)

    The free.fr servers have been reported here as not being very good...... the error you got should resolve quickly though.
    It is a host problem.
