    Just came home last night to this error upon login. Site is not visible online at all with a similar message "Error establishing a database connection"

    Tried the repair tool and no change.
    I am not a programmer and could use a little help here. We are on the phone (meaning on hold) to the host (Yahoo) to see if it could be their end?

    If you've changed nothing, then hang on that phone - chances are their database server has issues

    Just got off the phone with them (host:Yahoo) and they said I am likely infected with malware. They directed me for support here as I mentioned I am not a programmer so I am unable to go through the files. However my site remains down. (a site that my daily business is based on) So I am in need of some resolution.

    So what would be my next step? Options?

    From the wordpress wp-config repair attempt it has supplied me with these

    wp_posts: 1 client is using or hasn't closed the table properly
    wp_comments: 3 clients are using or haven't closed the table properly
    wp_options: Table is marked as crashed and last repair failed
    wp_postmeta: 1 client is using or hasn't closed the table properly
    wp_term_taxonomy: 1 client is using or hasn't closed the table properly
    wp_term_relationships: 1 client is using or hasn't closed the table properly
    wp_commentmeta: 2 clients are using or haven't closed the table properly

    Unfortunately not sure what to do with this.

    Try:
    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - then try repairing all of your database tables.

    OK, that got me back in. Thank you for that. What does that mean exactly - a plugin is the problem?

    Hard to say at this point. It could simply be that your database has a temporary problem. Just keep an eye on it for now.

    Site seems to be functioning normally, but if I can prevent that or need to make some changes I shall do it. Thanks Robin for the resources above.
