    All my sites just went down. Anyone else use them with same issues?

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?

    I try to log onto my hosting panel and it seems to be down too.. so must be there end.

    Just contact support so yeah they are down, I thought I had been hacked or something lol. But anyone having issues this is the answer I got.


    UPDATED: (2:48:57am)Jason C.:There does appear to be an issue on your server. We are aware of this and our admins are presently addressing the situation. I truly do apologize that I do not have the specifics of the issue, as we will not know until we can resolve it. We do constantly strive to resolve any server issues as quickly as possible. I thank you very much for your understanding.

    It's a server maintenance - it was planned and you can find a note about it in your control panel.

    My sites are also all currently down, however it should not take more than 1 hour I guess.

    I'm having same issue for a month now every now and then. It's getting really annoying and there's always MySQL server problem. I am hosting on a shared server and they never give me any specific details about it, just "We are working hard to fix this issue". But it's going on for a month now and I will have to change hosting provider if it continues.
