Unable to connect MySQL Database

MySQL Database Connection Failure!!

The domain stp.rf.gd against the username epiz_27979187 runs a URL Shortening service. It heavily relies on the database. However the service cannot connect to the database giving the error message PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1049].

I have double checked:

  • username
  • password
  • host address
  • port
  • DB Name

For reference, I cloned the application locally with the last backup I had of the database. It successfully runs via XAMPP, which is running PHP 7.4 and Apache Handler 2.0 with a self-signed SSL.

This error often comes every month. I have no idea how to get the thing working.
Please suggest anything.

There is an database outage. Many people are going through the same problem! “patience” is the solution!
