    (you can chack it here )

    I looked for a solution here but i don’t know what I can do.

    Please help, i have several questions :

    – is it possible that someone find my real login/password and change them ? (like hacker)
    – do I have lots all my blog ?

  • Your host’s database server must be down they are the only ones that can fix that so you will have to contact them.

    it’s sunday .. nobody work in france
    I hope tomorrow things will change…

    Is it possible to know if the serveur is down ?
    I have another account in the same “provider” ( and i can log on the databse with this other account (but maybe they have diffrent database)..

    how can I have this information.. and spend a good night 🙂

    What a coincidence! My blog also is having a problen since morning: Error establishing a database connection. I contacted my hosting provider and he said that the database server is down for some reason.
    The problem is mainly in the MySQL program, so the database is safe; the same may be the case with you.
    Lets hope it get’s working by t’morrow.


    I’m having the same problem with Dreamhost, since Friday. I sent a support ticket then, but I guess they’re not working on weekends, because I haven’t got a reply yet. Besides, the site’s been showing up and then dissapearing again, leaving just the “Error establishing a database connection” message from WordPress. It happend just 5 minutes ago, and now it’s working again:

    A simple way to find if the database is down is to ssh/telnet to the server and type <i>isql</i>. If you can connect and type in some queries then your database server is up.

    If another application is being able to access the database then the server is definitely up.
