As you can't get access to wp-config, try following these steps:

  1. Download the newest version of WordPress.
  2. Unpack it. Browse through the unpacked archive. Then delete the “wp-content” folder.
  3. Connect to your site via FTP.
  4. Head to the main WordPress root.
  5. Upload the new WordPress files. Overwrite all the previous files.

Now, go back to your site. You will find that the issue has been fixed.
