I just renewed my domain name
Now my site reds "Error establishing a database connection" when I attempt to go to it. I can't access the content of my site, or my wordpress control panel.

Hello and thanks for your question.

It looks like for some reason the WordPress database for your domain was no longer attached to your account, and the MySQL user you had setup in your wp-config.php file didn't exist on the account either.

I went ahead and reattached things for you, setting them up based off what you had in your wp-config.php file already.

It looks like you have some missing images, because the links to them are pointing to non-existent files. I fixed the main one for you which was named just cropped-Influx09.jpg on the server, but your website was trying to load it as cropped-cropped-Influx09.jpg. So I just made a copy of the image named that as well.

Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
