    I have been running this same database for months but today, there are massive visitors visit my site and sometime that error msg shows up. Does anyone know what caused?

    and if u think "A lot" of visitor caused this maybe your server is just to weak to support to much visitors :)

    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 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?
    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.

    i think it's this error , since ur site was working ...

    contact your host and tell them to restart your mysql server .
