Just an fyi for my clients… I noticed this blog wasn’t coming up and proceeded to spend 3 hours trying to figure out why. Spent some time on the phone with tech support, and we confirmed that the config file looked correct, etc., but it wasn’t until I went to the hosting management screen and then File Manager and then checked the box for the config file, that the database connection was restored and, voila!, it’s back and working again. I recall that with some shopping carts, after you make changes or sometimes “just because”, simply “touching” the config file out on the server will jump start the application again.
I just thought you’d like to know you aren’t the only people whose websites or blogs can get screwed up. Misery loves company, I know.
