While surfing I have activated links that bring up the following error, concerning WordPress. I do not know what WordPress is, and know nothing about any database, nor have any clue as to what a ‘wp-config.php’ file is,. I do know that my surfing experience diminished, ever since these errors loaded instead of the pages I intended to view, and I hope to resolve this issue with your help.
The error displays as follows:
“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 localhost. This could mean your host’s database server is down.
* Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
* Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
* Are you sure that the database server is running?
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.”
