Fatal error troubleshooting

Hi all. Woke up today and found my site suddenly not working.
Running the latest stable build of Vanilla (221)
Edited config to disable all plugins and switch back to default theme.
Deleted the /conf/* ini files

Heres what the error info i get says;

I hadn't changed anything on my site since January, and I'm the only one aside form my hosting provider with access. Any ideas?

    This is a hosting issue, assuming login credentials weren't changed in config.php

    Looks like your DB is not accessible.

  • Aaah, thanks. called my hosting provider and got it all sorted.
