I'm getting this error:
Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the
> connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double

> * Are you sure that the database server is running?
But I'm only getting it intermittently -- so this can't be a problem with my config settings. At other times I'm experiencing very slow downloads. This is on a newly launched blog using 1.2.1.
What are some possible common causes of this sort of thing? This is the first site I've launched where comments are enabled. Are comments sometime the culprit? The site is only getting about 10-20 comments/day. Also, one of my users has installed a site meter from sitemeter.com -- could that be a problem?
My host is usually very, very reliable, and I have another installation of WordPress 1.2.1 on the same server that is totally trouble-free.
