I noticed that my blog was down this morning. It's still down this afternoon. It shows an "Error establishing a database connection" error.

Any word on this? I have some things to blog this week - should I arrange something different? Thanks.

I'm sorry to be a pain but my blog has been down for nearly 2 weeks.

@jakem: any idea what's happening here? Did this blog get deleted? (though then it would 404 rather than a DB connect error, I think)

The files seem to be there - https://blog.mozilla.org/verdi/files/2012/12/blog-header.jpg for example.

Also, while looking for files I found this page which has a repair database link https://blog.mozilla.org/verdi/wp-admin/themes.php Should we click it?

Ah ha... good find. Your wp_options table needed to be repaired. It's done, and both the blog and that themes page work properly now.

I'll go through the database and double-check other tables, but this bug is good to go. :)
