wp-config.php is not connecting correctly (5 posts)

    I keep getting "Error connecting to database" intermittently.

    This what HostGator told me:

    public_html/dimitriphoto/wp-config.php is not connecting correctly. It either fails when the settings are fine or tries to connect more than 25 times simultaneously for no reason at all.

    Anyone know what the problem could be?

    No plugins at all, but the theme is kinda funky:

    Client wanted it, seams kinda over complicated to me.

    Site I have it on is http://dimitriphotography.com/

    Have you tried using the default theme to see if it is the current theme that makes all of the db calls? Or using a caching plugin?

    It's stopprd doing it, HostGator said they fixed it.
    Of course they also said that the first time it happened.
    I'll definitely get a cache clearing plug in, though, good idea.
    Thanks.
