    I frequently cannot get to my site or to the wp-admin due to the "Error Establishing Database Connection" message. I have read through the forums and saw something about accessing wp-config.php, but I don't know what this means. I use in Inmotion hosting. This is my first website, so if someone could give me step-by-step directions of what needs to be done, how to access the wp-config.php and what I need to do with it to fix the problem, that would be amazing. My site is elizpoore.com

  2. Your site is up right now, so if the the error message is intermittent, it's a problem at inmotion; their database server is unreliable. Ask them about it.
