Error establishing a database connection
Desperately need some help!
A few days ago I had the dreaded “Error establishing a database connection” that nobody seems to understand/fix. I could no longer even access my Blog to change anything. So I tried to change the wp_config.php with FTP to no avail. I asked my host. Nothing on his side!
Finally I followed the WordPress documentation bible to properly reedit the file. Following the guide I inadvertently reinstalled a new sample Blog 🙁 making the old one disappear. My stupidity seems to have no limitsâ€¦ Bottom line, thank God I still have all my old Blog files in Mysql accessible with cpanel. In other words I have two copies of all the table files under slightly different names: categories, links, options, etc.
Do I just delete the new ones, the ones created with the reinstall or is there a way to tell which tables to use in the wordpress admin. I could not find anything in options or anywhere else.
Any help greatly appreciated.
