smf connection problems server busy

SMF was unable to connect to the database.
smf connection problems

If you get a message which says SMF connection problem due to server busy. This is NOT due to the server being busy. but one of the reasons is you went to the server tab and changed something usually the database password.

now none of the solutions found on the net worked.
for examples they tell you to run repairsettings.php (this file does not exist)

what you need to do is find setting.php go there from your cpanel with your file manager and edit it . You will see the pwd is blank.

go to your setting.bak and get the password from there and add it to your settings.php
