Can’t use pingomatic

  • What is up with this?

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host’s database server is down.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    You cannot connect to the database. Pretty much you should do what it suggests and verify them with your hosting provider/sysadmin.

    I think the OP was referring to that message showing at Pingomatic. Looks like db problems…

    Divinemsjimmi is trying to say that Pingomatic is down, which it is.

    Pingomatic is having problems connecting to its database, and Pingomatic is built off of WordPress, which is why it displays the WordPress error for database connection. Pingomatic should be back in 1-6 hours. If you want it back sooner, please consider a small donation so they can buy more reliable hosting or get their own servers. After all, they are providing a free service.

    Well, as soon as I can get my book deal, I’ll write you a big fat check.
