Wordpress repeatedly gives "Error establishing database connection" inspite of having JetPack enabled
I have recently installed Wordpress, and as per the instructions here have installed jetpack.
In the “Enter the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses that you want to white list and click the Save button to update the Protect white list.” i have added the droplet IP and clicked on save. Is that correct?
After this, i have restarted apache as well as restarted the droplet just to be sure.
But something seems amiss, since the “Error establishing database connection” keeps recurring.
My droplet config:
1 GB Memory / 30 GB Disk / NYC3 - Ubuntu WordPress on 14.04
