"Error establishing a database connection"

  • Hi,

    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.

    check sql server connect.
