Hi dear everyone,
I have a website on WordPress that has been down at least for the past two months:
It is hosted with OVH and for the past weeks, I have been going back and forth with their customer support (which is not the most responsive on earth but at least the guy who is following up with me keeps giving me answers and truly tries to help - and besides we can speak French together since it is a French-based host and it is my native language so no language barrier, except for the technical one, which is huge enough for me!)
Therefore, I have already ruled out that it is not an error in the database name, or user name or password and the SQL is fine at their end, and I even have no problem with two other sites on the same plan that can be accessing the database as seen here:
So it is clearly something that seems to go wrong with my WordPress install.
So I asked on WordPress forums and I only got one answer from a nice guy from Arizona telling me to do what I had already done. And then I even got solicited by someone who sent me an email directly to offer to pay for $49 and they would fix it ~ which I found really tacky, since I am not able to put that amount otherwise I would have done it the first day and not after two months of trials and errors.
I do not know if this relevant but the error started to appear after I had been blocked by OVH for over quota and this is a website that is pretty much idle, so I assumed it was only spams getting in and after I optimized the database it was unlocked, but then I got the error as if something had reset the wrong way and I am completely unable to find what.
If someone is interested in helping me solve this mystery with me, I would really appreciate the guidance, because I don't understand anything about code and so forth!
Thank you so much for having read all this anyways!
