  • Either your database server is down or something is not correct in your wp-config.php file.

    See: Editing wp-config.php

    hi Michael, thanks for replying me. the database server is not down because i can still browse the primary site. only the subdomain, which is the blog, that i can’t get it. i tried correcting the wp-config.php numerous time, but the result is still the same. is my steps correct? i downloaded it and then i uploaded it back at the same folder. nothing is changed or modified through this. but however, i still get the error msg.

    thanks again

    If you are sure the information is correct in wp-config.php then check with your host or maybe something has happened to the database user you’ve got assigned to that database.
