    I am trying to install wordpress these last days on a windows server at godaddy, I'm currently getting the

    "This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at p41mysql79.secureserver.net. This could mean your host's database server is down."

    I searched this forum from the bottom but I cannot find the solution, every setting is fine in the config.

    I've been working on this these last fiew days. this is my last resource.

    Assuming you have a Windows CGI type account, then look closely as you having something wrong in you wp-config.php file.

    Also I think I remember someone having to change their database user password as it got mangled. So try changing the Database user password (in the Godaddy Hosting Control screens) and then put that password in your wp-config.php file.

    I am using a GoDaddy Windows server and was having a similar problem. Make sure that in the wp-config.php file under the "db-host" and where it says "99% chance you won't need to change this value,"change it to:

    p41mysql79.secureserver.net

    Thats fixed my problem, hope it fixes yours.

    I've already set that up in the wp-config.php

    Are the Blog files in your main directory, or are they in a sub-directory?

    Are you *sure* you have MySQL? I do lots of installations, and the "Windows Economy server" usually runs *MSSQL*, not MySQL.

    If you don't have MySQL, then you can't install WordPress.

    My advice: Switch to the Linux hosting. I use GoDaddy, and I've never gotten it to work on the Windows hosting. It works on the Linux hosting pretty well though.

    I am brand new to wordpress - and I know basicly nothing about coding...I recently copied my wordpress website from a .net domain to a .com domain ...and I can't seem to get it up and running. Both domains are on GoDaddy and have the exact same hosting package. I am using linux and mysql. I am getting the error mesage: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: require_wp_db()
    in /home/content/l/r/i/lridgeevan/html/wp/wp-settings.php on line 207

    I know where the wp-settings.php file is...but have no idea how to edit it or what "line 207" is...because of the rules of the forum..if someone can help me get this up and running...Please e-mail me - [mod]

    Don't edit anything.
    Learn to read the error message: whenever it says "undefined function" - it means you have missing or corrupted files. And it is NOT the wp-settings.php that is missing but the file where that function is defined. Which means, regardless what you said above, you did not copied over all the files correctly.

    There is no email support here.
