Support » Fixing WordPress » Error Connecting to database issues

  • I am hosted on and I am running into problem with the connecting to the database. I installed bbpress on another domain but I think it used the same database as wp so wp settings got messed up. Here is the code from my wpconfig file

    <?php// ** MySQL settings ** //define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘xxxxx’); // The name of the databasedefine(‘DB_USER’, ‘xxxx’); // Your MySQL usernamedefine(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘ZVHC8UtS’); // …and passworddefine(‘DB_HOST’ ‘$_ENV{DATABASE_SERVER}); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this valuedefine(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);// Change each KEY to a different unique phrase. You won’t have to remember the phrases later,// so make them long and complicated. You can visit to get keys generated for you, or just make something up. Each key should have a different phrase.define(‘AUTH_KEY’, ‘xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx’); // Change this to a unique phrase.define(‘SECURE_AUTH_KEY’, ‘xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx’); // Change this to a unique phrase.define(‘LOGGED_IN_KEY’, ‘xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx’); // Change this to a unique phrase.// You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix$table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!// Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the// chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages.// For example, install to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de’// to enable German language support.define (‘WPLANG’, ”);/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’) ) define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’);require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-settings.php’);?>

    It says error connecting to database. I tried changing it to localhost but that doesn’t work either. Any help. Also if I had to could I delete Wp and the database and then use a Mysql back up file to restore everything? Waht would I have to do in order to restore everything instead of just the tables?
    Well if you could help me out I would appreciate it. Thanks

    I am having similar issues

    web host says:

    browser cannot access data

    The issue occurred because your account has exceeded the maximum number of allowed simultaneous MySQL connections. You may want to have a look at a sample from the MySQL process table below:

    438072 bonnie_Editor localhost bonnie_WP2007 Query 7365 Locked UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = ‘’ WHERE ID = ‘3198’
    438076 bonnie_Editor localhost bonnie_WP2007 Query 7354 Locked SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS wp_posts.* FROM wp_posts INNER JOIN wp_term_relationships ON (wp_posts.
    438078 bonnie_Editor localhost bonnie_WP2007 Query 7351 Locked SELECT wp_posts.* FROM wp_posts WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.post_name = ‘al-gores-ten-lies-about-glob
    438084 bonnie_Editor localhost bonnie_WP2007 Query 7346 Locked SELECT post_modified_gmt FROM wp_posts WHERE post_status = ‘publish’ ORDER BY post_modified_gmt DESC

    As seen above, your WordPress application has created a lot of “stuck” MySQL queries which should not be happening under normal circumstances.

    They recommend super cache (already have cacheing installed, or REDUC number of plugins (22)

    Could multiple revisions in 2.6x causing DB to get cluttered?



    I meant to say

    could the keeping track of multiple revisions for each post be the culprit here?
