Installation Issues (5 posts)

    I have attempted to do two installations on two separate domains - one successful and one not (both hosted on the same server). The successful one was at root level - http://www.speckles.ca and the unsuccessful one was at yoursfaithfully.ca/blog. The unsuccessful attempt takes me to a "Page Not Found" on http://www.yoursfaithfully.ca. I have checked other threads but cannot solve the issue. Please help.

    Please give us more details how did you do this. Where did "Page Not Found" happen? While installing, after installing, somewhere in between. Also was this manual or automatic install?

    I checked your root level domain speckles.ca and it is showing me the forbidden error message. Also, I can access the domain yoursfaithfully.ca but it is not the wordpress installation and yoursfaithfully.ca/blog also did not worked.

    But when I checked the link as http://www.speckles.ca/blog/ I get the following error :

    "Error establishing a database connection"

    Now, I assume that you have tried to install the wordpress on http://www.speckles.ca/blog/ but did something wrong while inserting the database connection variables. So, try to use the database host name as "localhost" or contact your hosting provider to get the database details. The username and password will be your database username and password. Also, make sure that your database user have full admin privileges to your database.

    Simple

    Error establishing a database connection

    This means that you either didn't enter credentials in your wp-config.php or they're not valid.

    Did you have a chance to go over http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Famous_5-Minute_Install ?

    Cheers,

    I went through it about 10 times but thanks for asking.

    It seems that the following permalink code was missing:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Once this was added I could immediately access the administration panel and the error vanished without a trace!
