"Error establishing a database connection" (3 posts)

    My website and WordPress dashboard are intermittently not working, and I get the message "Error establishing a database connection" - I'm not entirely sure what this means.

    Is this a wordpress issue or a problem with hosting?

    My website is juliaknibbs.com

    Any help appreciated, thanks.

    If it was happening all the time, I would blame a setup in WordPress, such as a theme or plugin...If intermittent is more likely a host issue...

    That said, I would activate default unedited theme, deactivate all plugins and test site...if the problem goes away it is with one of those (or a combination of)..

    If same issue still occurs, contact your web host about this.
