Check first that the password is correct using the command line mysql. And user:. webworkWrite and the password entered into webwork2/conf/site.conf. If that doesn't work. It might be more complicated there is a history of problems with. DBD:mariaDB

This is because webwork can't communicate with the database (either mysql or mariadb). Double check that the database is up and running (see the install instructions on this) and that you have set the password for the user webworkWrite in site.conf.
