Help with 1.5 installation (6 posts)

    I am trying to setup WordPress 1.5 on a Mac OS X machine for testing.

    After setting up wordpress, mysql and starting php, when I run wp-admin/install.php I get an error screen saying Error establishing a database connection.

    This is OSX 10.3.8 on a local machine. I installed mysql standard. version 4.1.10a. Mysql was installed via the installer. WordPress folder was moved Library-WebServer-Documents with the folder named wordpress. I created a mysql database called wordpress. I am able to check status of database and it says it exists and is running. I followed the tutorial at http://maczealots.com/tutorials/wordpress/
    I need some advise on what else to look for.
    Thanks
    Jody

  2. This doesn't deal specifically with installing, but it may help clear up a few things: http://girtby.net/offerings/wordpress-osx-local-mirror

    Thanks this helped. The problem was the installed version of php would not work with mysql 4.1. I installed mysql 4.0.24 and it now works.
    Thanks
