I cant access my site It shows like below text please help me

Error establishing a database connection

This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host’s database server is down.

Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure the database server is running?

If you’re unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit wordpress

Hi there @sourabhshinge48,

It sounds like that your MySQL service might not be running. I would recommend checking the status of your MySQL service first with this command here:

  • sudo systemctl status mysql

After that if the service is not running, start the service with the following command:

  • sudo systemctl start mysql

Let me know how it goes!
