How to Fix the Error Establishing a Database Connection in WordPress?
Please help – Error establishing a database connection?
Often when logged into the editor, and trying to access a post to edit, I get the Error establishing a database connection message.
Speaking to my host (GoDaddy) they said I am probably getting this because the max connections are all being used. I have 24 user connections. Max connections is 1,000. They said this should be enough to support over 100k visitors a day. Which I am nowhere near there.
I disabled many plugins and temp changed the theme, but because its sporadic there its difficult to hone in on what is causing this, I also did a database repair of which no errors were found. It does occur daily.
Is there something I can use that can figure out what is gobbling up all the connections so quickly causing the Error establishing a database connection issue.
What else do you recommend that I can I do to diagnose the issue?
