Error establishing database connection

Can Only mean one thing and that is an Error establishing database connection, check your wp-config.php again and see that the database settings is correct and also make sure that your database user as permission on the database server.

  • it is allowed to access my database from everywhere, that is %, and the user/password in wp-config.php is correct, so i am confused why failed to establish database connection
