websites Error establishing a database connection
I already followed all the help tutorials from digitalocean and I was unable to put my websites online again.
My website wkpmidia.com.br (totally offline) receives “Error establishing a database connection”.
dietasbaratas.com (some pages accessible, but / wp-admin
receives the message “Error establishing a database connection”).
oticahorus.com.br (some pages accessible, but / wp-admin receives the message “Error establishing a database connection”).
I used FTP to get data from each wordpress site in wp-config. “DBNAME”, “DBUSER”, “DB_PASSWORD”.
I tried to connect via MYSQL via SSH, but I get the error “acess denied”
how can i get denied access? I got the information for each database in the wp-config file.
I’ve already followed the tutorials and nothing has resolved, not even adding define (‘WPALLOWREPAIR’, true); does not work
