    your answers to 2 and 3 dont make sense, did you or did you NOT make changes before the current message came up?

    In other words, did you attempt #3 in an attempt to fix?

    Have you looked at your wp-config.php to make sure the correct information is in there? If it is, and if youve made no changes that might affect the db settings, you NEED TO CONTACT YOUR WEB HOST.

    ppl here cant help you fix your hosts issues.

    if youve made changes to wp-config.php that you think might have broken it, download wordpress, extract it, edit a new wp-config.php with the proper information and reupload it.

    ppl here cant really help you any more than that. Your site WAS working, therefore undoing the changes youve made, if any, ought to make it work again.

    THAT, or YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR HOST.
