Subject: Error establishing a database connection By: Mitch Date: 16/03/2010

All went great with the set-up, and the blog was up and running for two weeks. Today, in the middle of adding a sidebar widget, I couldn't update the blog. I logged out and tried to log back in and now get the database error.

1) How do I access the database? Because this hosted locally, I don't know how to access phpMyAdmin, and the installation instructions were a mystery.

2) I have not changed wp-config. Is there some other reason that this error suddenly would block me from accessing the local site?

If anyone has any ideas how to address this error on an unhosted, portable blog, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you.
