I had faced the “Error establishing a Database connection” error suddenly while uploading images to the website (may be due to out of memory). I tried following the article “https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-debug-the-wordpress-error-establishing-database-connection”. Accordin to the steps given, I added “define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);” in my wp-config.php file. But I am not getting the repair screen. Instead it says “This page isn’t working xyz.com is currently unable to handle this request. HTTP ERROR 500”.
