The error occurs in that page. I'm not sure at how it happened, since I have not messed with my host at all.

Unable to connect to the MySQL server. If one of you can help me, it'd be appreciated. I'm able to access the host with no problem and everything seems fine until I try to access the forum.

Would switching hosts possible mediate the issue?

check database details in ~/inc/config.php file. database name / user name / host name / password might be changed / incorrect

$config['database']['type'] = 'mysqli';
$config['database']['database'] = '_________';
$config['database']['table_prefix'] = 'mybb_';

$config['database']['hostname'] = 'localhost';
$config['database']['username'] = '_________';
$config['database']['password'] = '_________' 

Quote:This occurs when you are using MySQL and the database password is incorrect in ./inc/config.php
To fix this, open ./inc/config.php file and check the entry for $config['database']['password'].
If you do not know what needs to be here, contact your host provider.
Alright, it seems to work for me. Can one of you visit the URL and let me know if it works? One of my friends who visited the site said they were unable to.
^ well, forum is loading now
Sweet. I really appreciate the help, thanks!
