    Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
    Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?
    ...and it's been running on me for over a few weeks now. is this simply a down time in my server?

    Yup. If it persists, email your host.

    if u have not changed anything.
    if someone has not hacked and changed anything.
    its most likely sql downtime on the server.
