Error establishing a database connection - DO 1 click wordpress installation.
Hello there! :)
I used to run the very same website on a droplet I set up myself in 2017. I decided to trash the project in early 2019 and recovered it on a DO 1 click wordpress installation about 2 months ago.
Since then I’m getting the Error establishing a database connection after the server runs for a few days. It’s easily fixed by restarting the droplet which indicates some sort of “misconfiguration” in the DB settings.
Does any of you have a clue on what it might be and how to resolve it? The website is really in its bare state as far as content goes and has no visitors at all.
