    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?

    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.

    Usually means something is wrong in your wp-config.php file.

    Rarely, it could mean your database host is down.

    Please review Editing wp-config.php and make sure your values are correct.

    Who is your host?
