    hello all,
    I desperately need your kind help PLEASE!

    I tried checking my website and it gave this error message: "Error establishing a database connection"

    i have a recent backup (using cPanel Backup Wizard)
    i tried the restore, and nothing happens. my DBs are still not showing and other than trying the restore wizard i have no clue on how to get them back.

    Check with your host to ensure that the MySQL service is running, or, if they have made any changes to it recently.
