    DB_ERROR_NOT_CONNECTED occurs when something is wrong with your database.

    Your /includes/configure.php and /admin/includes/configure.php files contain settings for the database (DB_SERVER ...

    The PCI rules for password management require that admin users change their password every 90 days.

    So, after 90 days has elapsed, the next time you log in to your Admin ...

    This error generally means that one or more system tables cannot be found in the database.

    This can occur if you've provided valid DB credentials in your configure.php files and the database itself exists but contains no tables. In this case you need to run zc_install to properly setup the database contents.

    Further, this symptom most commonly occurs when moving your site to another server and not properly preserving the DB_PREFIX setting from the old site's configure.php into the new site's configure.php, thus the tablenames cannot be located because they don't match up properly. Or you need to run zc_install to create the proper tables. Or you need to import the correct matching database data, since what you've got in the database presently isn't suitable for your current DB_PREFIX configuration.
    (To manually figure out the correct prefix to use, look at the database using phpMyAdmin and see what common 2-4 letter prefix starts all the tablenames. Then set that value into the DB_PREFIX definition in your configure.php file.)

    In the latest phpMyAdmin, the navigation on the left panel limits the list of tables to just a small portion of the available information.

    - Close all your browser windows
    - Open 1 browser window, and use it to clear your browser cache AND cookies.
    - If you browser has a Private Browsing mode, make sure you're NOT using "Private Browsing" mode, because that will prevent sessions/cookies from being usable
    - Reboot your computer
    - Turn off your firewall software and try again.
    - Ensure that your stylesheets don't contain any references ...

    This is a generic message which usually indicates your site is having problems accessing data in your MySQL database.
    It could be a problem with:
    • MySQL not running
    • incorrect DB_xxxxxxx settings in either of your configure.php files
    • syntax error in MySQL statements
