    My database was running fine. But now I keep getting the Error connecting to database message out of the blue. I have to keep refreshing until the page comes back up.

    Anyone have any solutions to try?

    Have you spoken to your hosting provider?

    esmi, Yes I keep telling them about it and they keep saying "we don't see a problem on our end please let us know how we can assist you further." It's been like that for 2 days with them.

    Thanks samboll I will go try that now. :)

    It said it does not support repair. So I optimized and analyzed them and they all checked out OK. My host restarted the server too. But I am still getting errors every other page. It's also happening on other MYSQL databases I use on this server, so it's not just WordPress.

    Could this be a space issue? I imported a lot of data into WP. I wonder if this is the case. My host has not said anything and I can't see my space limitations.

    Thanks

    It would have to a really huge blog to have developed problems due to space. The fact that you're getting similar problems with other dbs makes it sound like the server is either over-stretched or needs a serious overhaul/upgrade.
