2ND database lost in as many weeks

Issue Summary

“error establishing a database connection” This time (this happened last week to another one of my sites) the error happened as I was navigating through the site. Hit a couple of pages and then it failed.

Troubleshooting Questions

  • Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
    This is the second site so far.

  • Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
    Yes, I had to do that with the first site that went down. I recreated a new local, did a git pull of the theme from remote and then used db Migrate pro to pull the database. I just regarded this as a one off issue. Now that this has happened to a second site, I am concerned I’m going to lose all of them.
