    Hello I'm getting this error:
    Error establishing a database connection
    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, cgiadmin@yourhostingaccount.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
    More information about this error may be available in the server error log

    I don't remember editing this and have contacted image.com (my host) and they mentioned it was a custom_functions.php problem, but I haven't edited that and the last time I looked at my site it was up and running and I haven't edited it since!

    Any suggestions? The website is http://www.knvmusictherapy.com

    thanks

    You need to connect the mySQL database using by editing configuration.php (or wp-config.php) to match the settings you had when u first set WP up..

    Hope that helps.

    It was a hosting problem, they just contacted me and the website is now up! Thank you for your replies!
