#13657 new enhancement

When WP_DEBUG is true show better errors for establishing database connection

Right now no matter if WP_DEBUG is enabled or not we always show some generic errors for Error establishing a database connection

We should display the specific error when WP_DEBUG is enabled.

Patch is just an idea of how we might do this. Open to other suggestions and patches.

I would tend to think we should not be exposing the output of mysql_error() on any site. Or, if we do, then we at least also check for display_errors/WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY, in case they want WP_DEBUG (as can be common in production) but are logging it.

The way that translations are handled for these errors makes it difficult to do conditionals like this. Mainly due to duplicating large portions of code and strings. Well maybe not large but more than I am comfortable with duplicating.

I may just need to stare at the code for a bit to get a creative solution, that is unless someone has recommendations.
