Error establishing a database connection

Error in Wordpress dashboard!
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 . 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’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.

Maybe try to read this article to fix common MySQL issues:

or if you are still sure you fixed those, but still shows that screen then that’s a problem on the MySQL server you’re on and you need to wait until iFastNet fixes this.


To amend to @Ergastolator1’s post: if you get this error occasionally and refreshing the page doesn’t show the same error again, then it might just be that the database server is acting up. If you consistently get this error, then it’s likely a configuration issue as is described by the article.
