SOLVED – Database Error: Could not connect to mysql database – UPDATED May 2016


Do not use this site – Constantly having issues with the underlying stability and infrastructure of this site. After resolving one issue, they created another one which then they had the cheek to ask $100 to fix. Finally getting fed up with very poor service and customer support, i asked to close down the account. They then informed me that although I had paid up front and still had two years of service remaining, they would not provide any pro-rata refund. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY IS YOU REQUIRE ANY FORM OF PROACTIVE TECHNICAL SERVICE OR CUSTOMER SUPPORT! Dave Mckenzie, Brisbane, Australia, www.davemck.com

    Hi Brad, thanks for your tutorial. I have really tried everything and I still can't restore my site 🙁 I have a back up download with akeeba back up, and I have done it before with other sites.. I am not very good at this, but i try. So this time when I try to restore my site, I keep getting the same error message: Unable to connect to the Database: Could not connect to MySQL. I don't really know what also to do.. Any idea please? .. By the way, I am using a different domain . Thanks
