I recently installed WordPress on my Aplus.net-hosted website. I have their SoloXR package, which only provides shared mySQL database access.
That means that I can't choose the name of my DB, nor can I add users or modify permissions. However, I believe that some people have successfully installed WordPress on SoloXR accounts.
Can anyone tell me what's going wrong? The error I get is "Error establishing a database connection", which you can see here: http://blog.siebengartner.com.
My wp-config settings are:
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'geoffs'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'geoffs'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', '*******'); // ...and password
define('localhost', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
I've also tried replacing localhost with the actual name of my SQL server, which is pro7.abac.com, but that gets the same error.
Thanks for your help.
