[PHP] Azure Wordpress Sites Not Connecting to DB RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 Wordpress websites hosted through Microsoft Azure. They were all working fine yesterday but now say: "Error establishing a database connection".

    I have tried using FileZilla to inspect the wp-config.php and all the fields for DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD, and DB_HOST appear correct.

    When I inspect Azure it says everything is running. Going to the database item in Azure it redirects me to the ClearDB management portal and everything appears okay here as well.

    Also I tried adding "define( 'WP_ALLOW_REPAIR', true );" to my wp-config.php as well and going to repair but this did not work either.

    What can I do to fix this?

  • Hi,

    please upgrade the clearDB to different plan and check if the same issue occurs.
