wordpress database connection problem

Jun 15, 2012 by SunFun
 I have just updated to WordPress 3.4 and all of the sudden, the admin dashboard is not connecting to the database. It works normally at the site, but not in the dashboard. I checked my configuration in wp-config.php file. How can I fix this? Any help will be really appreciated.

Try the following;
- switch to the Twenty Eleven theme and rename your theme's folder from ‘ wp-content/themes’  and add  ‘-old’ at the end of the folder name vis FTP or any other file management application that you are using.
- reset the plugin folder by  phpAdmin or FTP
- from a fresh download of WordPress, re-upload all files & folders except for the ‘wp-content’ folder
