    -First, double check your wp-config.php file settings for the database name, database username and database password. This is where most errors occur.

    -Then check that you don’t need to change the database host from “localhost” to something else. You can get that info from your hosting provider.

    -Check you have actually created a database with the same database name as is in your wp-config.php file.

    -Last, but not least, if all that information is correct your database probably has a problem with it, and you may need to contact your hosting provider.

    My site (http://munshigonj.com/bn/) was running more than a year, now it showing…. Error establishing a database connection

    As your site was working and now you getting error the first thing I would do is contact host as they may be having problem on database server before making any changes on your wordpress
