Can't connect to MySQL server error 111
This week I had to help someone out as there was an issue after there was a host IP change. There was then an issue with people connecting to the database.
As it turned out if you do come accross this look in /etc/my.cnf, there is a line.
bind-address = ip.add.ress
This may be the old address for the server and this will stop connections, change this to your new address and restart MySQL/MariaDB and you should be good again.
