Database Connection Failed

Website URL

Error establishing a database connection

This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or that contact with the database server at could not be established. This could mean your host’s database server is down.

  • Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
  • Are you sure you have typed the correct hostname?
  • Are you sure the database server is running?

If you are unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress support forums.

Error establishing a database connection

Database Username, Host and Password are CORRECT

(other information and details relevant to your question)

Prove it then. Apparently, they aren’t, when judging your error and the screenshot you shared.


No, they very clearly are not. I don’t know what makes you believe otherwise.

If you check the database name in your wp-config.php, and check the list of databases in the client area or control panel, you’ll see no such database exists.

The database that does exists appears to be empty.

So it seems that your website’s database is gone. I don’t know what happened to it or when, but unless you have a backup of your database, I’m sorry to say that your website is probably lost.
