WP static front page error connecting database

Jan 14, 2013 by Maria
I have set up a WordPress site using blog posts publishing on the homepage. I then tried to create a single static front page with a separate tab for my blog posts. I followed WordPress instructions on how to create a static front page. I created a page called blog and then went to settings -> reading and selected the page as my blog page. My problem is that now if I click on the new blog page I get the error message, "Error in connecting to the database".
Can anyone please help me get  my posts links to change correctly. Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Check if you have an actual folder in your file system called /blog/  (this might be another instance of WordPress). Change the page name or the permalink for this blog page.  Or just rename the folder in your file system.
