    Is wordpress down? I get this error when trying to go to my blog http://shuaibao.blogsome.com/

    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.

    * 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.

    And I went to the forums here, what happened?

    Wait I mean server
