    Please teach and advice me. I am newbie in WP

    Hi all,

    I have the same problem. For the past few days the site is very very slow.
    And from time to time, I got this error:

    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 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.

    My host proposed me to change my database to another server. Do you think, it can help ?

    How can your host propose you to change database to another server they are the ones managing the servers.


    If you having problems sometimes then it diffidently the Mysql server

    Ok support told me that he MySQL server is unstable. So sometimes, these problem can be caused by unstable server.

    Must we select a server that provide with hosting company? My hosting company provide secure server till 6. Is this useful?

    I’m not sure what you mean a secure server until 6. Can you explain this more?

    i AM Not understand too. when i report a problem, on client panels i must select server like that? I am not sure

    check your database settings in the wp-config file and make sure all the database credentials are correct
