Solved – Error Establishing a Database Connection wordpress


Error establishing a database connection.

This is the common issue for a WordPress site while porting from local to live or migrating from one host to other.

Causes:

  1.    Your login details for your database are wrong.
  2.    Corrupted Database

Solution:

Check Database name and user

Check Phpmyadmin whether the database imported correctly.

 

Check the wp-config.php, has the same database name and user, also check the password provided for user

If the above point doesn’t work, then create a new DB and import the existing database..
