    Hey all, just got this coming up when I tried to hit

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at This could mean your host's database server is down.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    Anyone else?

    Sadly, yes.

    It's back up now. The host's database server was down.

    This is why I came onto the site, do we know what's up with it?

    I repeat: the host's database server is down. Obviously it just went down again. They have been having difficulties since last night.
