Error establishing a database connection – blog entirely GONE

    Can anyone advise on how/why would disappear? No access via permalinks, link from the website and no admin access, of course, either. Just “error establishing a database connection.” I BELIEVE it was a set up originally, but I didn’t create it so don’t know. I do know it hadn’t been updated in a while, despite weekly posts. Very grateful for help/input… I’m just a writer!

    That doesn’t look like a blog (judging from the nameserver information).

    You may not be in the right forum after all. Did you read the rest of the supportbot message?


    Yes, though not sure I understood it. I know the login includes ” wp-login.php “
    does that help? (Thanks for the response.)



    You need to post to http://wordpress.ORG/support/


    Thanks, Timethief. I tried logging in to that support forum, but it doesn’t recognize the username/password there — only on this one. Thoughts?



    Yes. You have to register a username account there in order to post to the support forum.
