Support » Fixing WordPress » Suddenly ‘Error establishing a database connection’ on my xampp server

  • Hi, I wonder if you could give me an insight on why I am getting this error message: ‘Error establishing a database connection’ suddenly. Last week it was working properly and I havent changed anything.

    The link to my wordpress site is:
    http://localhost/wordpress/

    has been working fine until i found out yesterday when I got this message.

    Accessing the wp-admin gives me a slight different message:
    ‘Can’t select database
    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the bitnami_wordpress database.

    Are you sure it exists?
    Does the user bn_wordpress have permission to use the bitnami_wordpress database?
    On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_bitnami_wordpress. Could that be the problem?’

    This is really strange as i havent messed with any of the config files. Havent even used my computer for a week. Any help would be appreciated
