#16609: Misleading "Error establishing a database connection"

 Priority:  normal       |   Keywords:  2nd-opinion needs-patch ux-feedback
Component:  Multisite    |
 Severity:  minor        |
 Multisite install shows:

 "Error establishing a database connection"

 Even if credentials are OK when it doesn't find the domain entry in
 wp_blogs table, this is very misleading, would be helpful to have the same
 meaningful error message that /wp-admin shows.
