    Hi, I’ve killed my website by enabling cross-origin same-site setting.

    I now get this error:
    Error establishing a database connection
    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php
    file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at mysql.<mywebsite>.co.uk
    . This could mean your host’s database server is down.

    I still have SSH access to the server so can I undo this by editing .htaccess or any other file for example?

    thankfully, this appears to have resolved itself on its own after about 5 minutes

    Hi Leon,

    The header may block resources on your site, but can’t block the database connection. Can’t say what the cause was, but it must have been something else.

    Let me know if need any assistance.
