Hello. I wonder if someone can help me. I am trying to install WP with 1and1 hosting. I have tried automatically letting the config file run but without success. I then manually entered the details, checked and re-checked but if I try and point to my site it just tells me that there is an error establishing a DB connection.
I am using Filezilla on a Mac and here is a copy of my config file
[ Moderator Note: Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button. ]
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for WordPress */ define('DB_NAME', 'db463029262'); /** MySQL database username */ define('DB_USER', 'don't post that here'); /** MySQL database password */ define('DB_PASSWORD', '********'); /** MySQL hostname */ define('DB_HOST', 'honestly don't); /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */ define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8'); /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */ define('DB_COLLATE', '');
I am beginning to wonder if its a problem with where I have put WP on the Host. I uploaded it to the root directory but the remote site address in Filezilla reads the user name ie /u1234567/mywebsite.co.uk
Its driving me nuts :-( and I would appreciate any help you can give.
