    This is in the wrong place for a question.

    It sounds like the update failed, could be due to incorrect permissions on some of the directories.

    You will need to manually update WordPress to rectify the issue.

  3. @bioshox: You're completely wrong.

    @bhautikawa: An automatic update will not break the database connection or change settings. You need to check to see if you still have a wp-config.php file and if so, check with your host for the correct database connection info. Or, the whole problem could simply be your web host is temporarily down.

    I moved a site a few days ago. It has had no issues at all. It is a WP site moved to a subdirectory.

    The site is randwickcitytourism.com.au/design-awards

    It has been fine until this morning when I was changing some images (no other changes & none made to wp-config file). I received the message "Error establishing database connection".

    The main site is still "live" (randwickcitytourism.com.au) so I have to assume it is not the hosting. Any suggestions?

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