    Have you checked your database details with your hosts?
    Is this a new install?

    I'm not really an expert. The site is a GoDaddy domain, but it's not hosted there that I know of. I just set the domain name in WordPress settings.

    So where is it hosted?

    I didn't know that it had to be hosted somewhere. Just set up the WordPress account, linked the domain name and made the theme work the way I wanted.
