error establishing a database connection

I am using the coupon theme and from time to time I get this error message: error establishing a database connection. This is an error message I have always had when using this theme. I had been using the theme for a couple of years but then took the site down for a while. I have now started to use the theme again and I am now getting this message again. Does anyone know what I need to fix it? As I said it doesn't do it all the time!

    I doubt it’s related to the theme, it sounds more of a potential server issue.

    I’d recommend just checking all of the DB settings in the WP configuration as well as in your hosting manager db settings (i.e. cPanel, Pleske…etc)

    I use cronjobs to update the coupons do you know if that would cause the error?

    “I use cronjobs to update the coupons do you know if that would cause the error?”

    I wouldn’t think so, but I guess it could depend on how that process is setup and runs.
