    “Error establishing a database connection” means that there is a problem with the connection to your database
    – a problem with the credentials stored in the wp-config.php file not matching what mysql expects.
    – Try reviewing the following codex for some guidance: http://codex.wordpress.org/Common_WordPress_Errors#Error_Establishing_Database_Connection
    – Also review this tutorial: http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutori...ablishing-a-database-connection-in-wordpress/
    – If the error is intermittent then it’s your server. What’s happening is that the web server and/or the database server are gettign overloaded and the connection is droping out or is refused for a short time. That gives you the database error as the website can’t connect to the database. To fix this, you’ll need to talk to your hosting company as they are the only ones that can do anything about hardware issues like this.
