    You need to check your database connection details with your hosts. It’s not something we can really help you with here.




    So, check if you have entered the correct database name, database username, database password and MySQL hostname in your wp-config.php file. Also, check if you have a working database (i.e., with no empty tables, damaged or corrupt data).
