Support » Installing WordPress » Problem with upgrade after I was shoot down Google/malware

  • Resolved sivcathrin


    Hi you !!
    I think I need some advice before I`m going crazy..

    My site has been down (shot down by google coz Google suspected malware and viruses ) – Ive cleaned the site up using FTP, and even Google say its good to go..

    But it has not been so easy, For several days now I have been trying to figure out the solution – but now I seriously need help 🙂

    First couple of days all I got when I typed inn my blog url( was INDEX/Blog

    I read some more and found out if I typed in my browser everything would be correct again.

    Didn`t happen to me thoug – all I see is:

    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 This could mean your host’s database server is down.

    Are you sure you have the correct username and password? YES
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname? YES
    Are you sure that the database server is running? YES
    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.

    I`ve checked my config.php and MySql – OKAY

    Help me pleas !!!

    Best regards
    Siv Cathrin
