    I was working on a post earlier today when my site (concertconfessions.com) crashed and I got this message. Error establishing a database connection

    I can't even get into the dashboard to try to mess with the plugins as suggested. I also can't get through to Go Daddy who is my host etc. Is anyone else having this issue today?

    I'm having the same exact issues @concertconfessions (tinydreamsphotography.com).Looks like it might be an issue with GoDaddy (saw this on another forum but can't remember where!).

    By chance did anyone recently update the plugin Advanced Custom Fields? This error occurred right after the plugin instructed me to update my database. Not sure if it is a coincidence or related.

    Yeiks. I'm in the same boat: "Error establishing a database connection" and am using GoDaddy.

    Off to Go Daddy to see if I can hunt down an answer.

    My site is:
    InTheNext30Days.net

    I just started building a site for a client now it's down. This is the first time I've used WP now this happens.

    Hopefully this doesn't take to long to fix.

    I am back up and then down and that's the way it's been all day. VERY GLITCHY!!!! I am praying this isn't a privacy issue as well...

    My site is the same way @TheGivingBear. I'm back down too. I do wonder how deep into GoDaddy it goes. I guess we have no choice but to wait and see.

    Hey people, is this happening again?
    I'm on GoDaddy too, but I'm getting this 500 Error only today...

    I am not on GoDaddy, but today all of the wordpress sites that I host with my reseller account are down and all I get is this message: Error establishing a database connection

    I'm sure it's an issue with the host-provider's Database as my non-wordpress sites are ok. I use Plugin Space.

    Is anyone else who hosts with them having the same or similar issue?
