Support » Fixing WordPress » Error establishing a database connection

  • Jenns


    I’m getting “Error establishing a database connection” when I try to access my blog. I have no idea what’s wrong. I was just editing a page, but when I went to save it, the error page popped up instead.

    Everything was working fine before this, and I don’t think it’s anything to do with my host, since I have another blog on another domain with the same host. I’m using WP 2.0 on this blog and WP 1.5.2 on the other. Could this be a 2.0 problem? Please help. =(

    Jenns, it probably is an issue on your end. I had this problem a few weeks ago and I just kept refreshing and the problem went away. Just because one blog is able to access the database doesn’t mean that the other one will.

    Also, the way you are describing your problem — and the problem itself — is very general.



    Try repairing the database through your Hosts control panel. Maybe that could be an issue.

    Remember to backup first.



    Update: It seems to have resolved itself. =D Thanks for the responses! =D
