See: Error making the database connection

Your site is probably configured to use a hostname for the database. It should be set to ‘localhost’ or the IP address of your database server. Cloudflare does not proxy database traffic.

Hello tank you i am a amateur so where do i can do this It should be set to ‘localhost’ or the IP address of your database server.

If this is WordPress, it’s in the wp-config.php file on your server. If it’s not WordPress, then I don’t know where that would be set. In that case, reply with the name of the software you’re using and someone here might know the answer.
