That sounds like an error on the server at the website. Try emailing webmaster at the site if the problem persists.

✔ Best Answer
If the site was down you would get a "site not found" type message. The message about not being able to connect to a database server must have come from the website itself. Either something is very wrong with the site (which you would hope would be sorted soon) or it is a problem with your account on the website.

Every website should have a webmaster@(whatever the domain name is) where you can report problems.
