Hi, I set up a WordPress blog on Digital Ocean and I’ve had to reboot the server twice in two days. After setting up the blog, and posting one story successfully, I returned to admire my beautiful work two hours later only to see the message (Error Establishing Database Connection). I then rebooted the server and got it working again, posted another heartbreaking story successfully, and, after waiting a period of time, I returned to admire my first two stories only to see Error Establishing Database Connection again, which I was able to fix by rebooting the server.
I used the tutorial on your website to setup wordpress with Apache and Mysql.
Is this expected behavior? Is there anything I could do to prevent this from happening?
