All my sites are down

Hello,

All of a sudden my sites are all down, displaying this massage:

Error establishing a database connection.

I have checked with DreamHost, but the server seems to be up and running. Any idea what it can be?

The sites are:
www.orangepeel.co.nz
www.visualizeyourgoals.com

Thanks,

Cornelis

Cornelis,

Your “orangepeel” site seems to have healed itself, as it comes up fine for me…visualizeyourgoals still shows the WordPress generated DB connection error.

While the webserver is “up”, the MySQL server may be down (assuming these sites are running n different servers). I’m assuming that you have had both of these site operable in the past - the error is also what you might see if your WordPress is improperly configured.
