I'm trying to install WordPress on a Mac OS X 10.3.9 (client) box, but I'm having some trouble. I installed MySQL 5 for OS X (using the .pkg installer), and it seems to be working fine. I can connect on the command line with the mysql client.
I then placed the WordPress files in a "blog" subdirectory of my ~/Sites directory (Apache uses the Sites directory as the user's www root folder).
When I load the blog directory in a browser, I get a message that there was an "Error establishing a database connection." I know that the user & password in the wp-config.php file are correct (I can use them on the command line).
Does anybody have any guesses as to what the problem could be?
