Error establishing a database connection-Redux (5 posts)

    I am suffering the same old error: Error establishing a database connection. I have checked and rechecked my config file, changed my MySQL password. I have done everything that I could find to resolve the issue. I have installed literally dozens of WordPress sites over the years and this one is giving me fits. All I can think of is that I'm missing something that Hasn't been discussed somewhere that I have read. This install is a local install on Ubuntu Server running LAMP.

    Check you have actually created a database with the same database name as is in your wp-config.php file.

    Done...the database name is the same.

    Have you checked everything?

    Did you assign the right privileges for a dbase userName for a dbase name?

    I checked both server and DB settings. The only thing I can think of is that it may be a permissions issue.
