VPS – WordPress – issue with permalink and database connection


I am using VPS (Ubuntu 18.04) and have a WordPress setup in it. After a successful installation, I faced a permalink issue. Only the homepage shows output and all other pages show 404 in front-end. I searched for its solution on the internet and modified the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file as below:

       <Directory /var/www/>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride All
                allow from all

After this, I start facing database connection issues with the message “Error establishing a connection.” I confirmed database configuration in the wp-config.php file. Also, same configuration work well when I tried it with a simple PHP file.

Any suggestion/help in this is a ray of hope for me here.
