I started building a Joomla website for the first time yesterday and everything was going well until today I was suddenly unable to access my website. Whenever I try to access it I just see a blank screen and a message that reads ‘Database connection error (2): Could not connect to MySQL.’
The website is hosted with godaddy.com so I called them. First, they told me to try and clear my computer’s cache to see if that would have any effect. It didn’t, so afterwards I called them again and they told me that it’s probably some problem with one of the files in the database but they wouldn’t know how to fix it.
I’ve read suggestions online that say that people with this problem should go to the backend of their website and access the configuration.php file. I don’t know what this is or how to get to it because I can’t access my /administrator page.
If anyone can help me with this it would be hugely appreciated!
I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
