How do you know its corrupted? There could be different reasons for connections failure. Check if there are firewall changes in your organisation that has blocked the connection.

First of all there could be several  reasons.

1. You need to  now where your database is running( which server, is it running ? )

2. Make sure You don't have network issues btw database server and Jira server( if you  are running Jira on  your own  server

3.dbconfig.xml could be faulty,  make sure that the user name and password is correct for the user which  jira uses to  connect to  database

4. other things you could do  try to ping the IP address of your  database server and see whether or not you  get response.

5. Check jira logs /database server logs :)

6. See  also  KB article  https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/startup-check-jira-database-connections-872262124.html
