Wordpress site is down and won't come back up

  • Posted August 14, 2014

My Wordpress site has gone down and will not reboot. The error is:

Error establishing a database connection

I’ve tried restarting from the console and UI, but no luck. I have a swap as well.

This isn’t the first time this has happened either, although it happened after a long time…

Any permanent solutions to this recurring and annoying problem???
