Hey everyone... Im sure you get this question all the time but Im a pretty novice web guy trying to fix my site. We've been getting this error message a lot lately and our readers are having to refresh a few times before they can get on the site. Our host has gone on our site and reports no problems... how can I fix it??? A HUGE thanks in advance!!!
Error establishing a database connection
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 MYSQLHOST.
* 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?
If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
