WTF?

  • My site was running fine today. I go to post something this evening and i get this message.
    Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
    Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?

    could someone be hacking my site?

  • I’ve seen a similar message (without the info on wp) when trying to view other people’s blogs sometimes, usually temporarily due to e.g. maintenance (database server) executed by their host.
    I wouldn’t start panicking rightaway.

    I’ve had it too – give it 30 minutes, then email your host.
    It’s probably routine server maintenance.

    thanks!
