Yahoo Hosting and 'Error establishing a database connection (6 posts)

    Hello,

    Yes, I know there have been a number of posts on this, but this one is different because:

    1. It's happening with Yahoo Hosting, and

    2. It's happening, not on install, but to an already installed (for months) site: http://www.californiastatebell.com

    I've gotten this error twice now, and the second time it fixed itself.

    Questions:

    1. Why does this error suddenly occur out of nowhere?
    2. Yahoo said it was probably an error created by WordPress itself. Does that sound right?
    3. How did it fix itself?
    4. Will it keep happening
    5. Should I scrap WordPress?

    If anyone can help, it will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Californiastatebell.com

    Thread from earlier today... (I love search!)

    2 - Yahoo is full of poo.
    3 - Yahoo fixed it.
    4 - ?
    5 - Stay with Yahoo and scrap WP? I'd probably advocate the other direction.

    Search around here -- there are some other Yahoo related threads recently about their MySQL issues. Not WP issues.

    I'd agree with Handy there - 'specially on the #2. LOL

    Wow, thanks for the quick feedback and link to the other posts. Actually, I've had other problems with Yahoo too.

    It's a pain in the butt, but I think I'm gonna move the site.

    In all fairness...

    I was out of line using "advocate" in my previous response.

    All I know is what I see here. I'm sure they have tons of happy clients.
