Apologies to anyone who recently tried to visit this site only to be greeted by a message stating, “Sorry a database connection cannot be established”. I had no idea until I wanted to look something up on my own site. Now I have to say that this issue plagued another WordPress site of mine, hosted on Digital Ocean and it became a major issue. I ended up rewriting the site using a different technology and hosting on a different server altogether!
I will keep a close eye on this…. If it happens again, I am going to have to re-think things a little bit 😦
