Just checked my site today and I'm getting this display.

MySQL said: Unknown MySQL server host '' (2)

I was going to upload my backup, but just want to find out what you suggest.

Check to see if the database is actually working. Look at it using phpmyadmin. It could be a hosting problem.

Then check your include/ and check all the details are correct.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
