Error establishing a database connection (6 posts)

    I am getting an error Error establishing a database connection.

    I exported my sql file and imported it successfully. Then changed the url in both places under wp_options, then transferred my wordpress root folder to ftp.

    This is being transferred to a companies internal servers so I can't contact the host.

    Is there something that I did wrong or am missing?

    Thanks for your help.

    Check the database details with the new hosts.

    the connection details in your wp-config.php file need to point to the location of the database, with correct login info

    Has that been done correctly?

    It was indeed config ID and password. Now I am only seeing the first page. What can I do to fix that?
