    I am getting this MySQL error while trying to access the site and and even while trying to log into administrator.

    Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

    I have tried refreshing and accessing it a dozen times.

    Can somebody please help me to restart MySQL?

    You can start/stop the mysql service on the server by logging into the server as root from the command line interface and run the following command/s.

    service mysql stop
    service mysql start
    service mysql restart

    You can also use the following if the above does not work fine.
