  • You’ll need to talk to your host about your mysql being down.

    Contact your hosting provider.


    First check these options:

    – Username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Please check with PHPMyAdmin and correct it or reset it. Also make necessary changes in wp-config.php file.

    – Make sure that you have typed correct host name in wp-config.php file.

    If this does not help then may be hosting service provider’s database server is down. Hence, take a support from your hosting service provider.
