Nothing to do with files, but with the database obviously used by your wep application (possibly a CMS like Wordpress or Joomla!). There should be a config.php where you have to enter your database login details.

This can be two things: 1. you or someone else who manage the site changed the sql database password, which you will need to update the login information in the config file. 2. your hosting company's database server might be down, which you can check by simply go to phpmyadmin, if not working, then it is your hosting company's database down, you need to contact them.

First of all you need to give full information in which language you want to connect the database and which database it is? These make basic clear and thus we can help you out with technical details.

If you only handling the webpages ask the host provider else check with your collaborators or admin.
