I've finished my wordpress and would now like to use my domain on it.
The wp is accessible for now on a domain that goes mysite.myhost.com/wordpress and I would like to achieve mysite.com/wordpress to then follow the codex procedure to obtain mysite.com
My question is, what should I do with my domain? I redirected the DNS, and it works, I succeeded in adding it as a parked domain unto mysite.myhost.com, but after reading more about this topic, I'm getting confused : some people install wp on a parked domain, some on an addon! What should I do to obtain in the end a neat mysite.com domain?
Addon or parked? And is there any modification needed to have it running?
Also, I didn't check my website before putting the domain in the parked domains, but after I did so I tried to access my wp-admin and I get the "Error establishing a database connection" bug.
Last time I had this, my host provider's full site was down, but now it's just mine. The site itself shows the same database connection bug. Is it related?
Cheers, any advice much welcome.
P.S : I often see coming up topics where people ask because they use multisites, but I just have a straight, simple portfolio with a few pages and it's all there will ever be there!
