    This is the problem.

    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', 'value_mmix');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'value_mmix');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '12345mmix');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    I asked godaddy and they have send me this.

    What must I do with this concerning: You can get this info from your web host

    What must I insert exactly into the various spaces.

    I'm fairly new at this.

    Are you trying to install WordPress as a new site (a fresh copy), or are you trying to transfer a site?

    I bought a sit from flippa and I must configure it and put it back into the http docs.

    But don't know what to put in there.

    Transfer a site

    If you're transferring a site, you'll need the database from the previous copy of the site. Try to find that.

    Some good information on moving a site can be found here: Moving WordPress.

    Yes but you still need a database to connect to. That's where all the information for the site lives.

    I have the database files.
    I wanted to import it into the SQL but did not work. I did it when it was in a rar file and plain.

    Error
    SQL query:

    --
    -- Database: value_mmix

    -- Table structure for table wp_cntctfrm_field

    Well it's difficult to say what's happening, I'm not an SQL expert, but are you sure you created a new database to import the old one to?

    I don't know which one to do it in. There are 2.

    wpdb 50.62.209.12:3306 joseph_admin Webadmin Copy

    MySQL wordpress_d0 (Used by an installed web app) 50.62.209.12:3306 joseph_admin, wordpress_99

    OK, you're much better asking your webhost for support. Explain your problem clearly and in detail to them.

    I think you need to create a new database in your CPanel (on your web host's customer area), and you should be able to import the database from the old site. When you create this database, you will use a username, password and your webhosting will tell you your MySQL hostname. This is the information you will enter into config.php.

    No. I'm afraid this is not the information you're looking for.

    Doesn't GoDaddy's have a one-click install of WP?

    If you've successfully uploaded the Database, you need to edit wp-config.php via FTP (where you uploaded your WordPress site) with the Database details I explained above. See: wp-config.php
