    Another person created the theme for Civilization Engineering which is hosted through Fatcow. I just took over as admin and uploaded 4 .pdfs into the media file. That was probably my first error. Immediately after I started getting error messages for all the pages except the splash and home page.
    Called Fatcow, and they tried to recover the site from a few days ago. Didn’t work. They removed the 4 offending files and still nothing worked and told me to contact you folks.
    Now I can’t even gain access at all as admin. The splash and home pages are still viewable but all the other pages show “Error establishing a database connection”
    I spent some time replicating the look of the site through Fatcow’s Site Delux thing so the site owner wouldn’t go ballistic but I really need some help here.
