Today, randomly my WordPress site decided to be Up and Down several times. On the Wp-Admin page it says “Error Establishing a Database Connection” and sometimes a 504 Error also…
Connected to BlueHost and they said they can’t find anything wrong with the connection. However I haven’t changed anything in my WordPress files to make this happen?
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 localhost. 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.
Also every once in a while I do get to the WP dashboard so the password/username thing isn’t it
