Installation problem, PHP, MYSQL on local machine (12 posts)

    Hi
    I were installed the mysql-essential-4.1.12a-win32 and php-4.3.10-Win32
    on a XP box, and then I were created the new database and related username having all privilieges and grants. Then I configured the
    wp-config.php according my specification (database name and ...) carefully.
    But when I came to instll the wordpress using the following link:
    http://localhost/wordpress/wp-config.php
    I got a page containing following messege:

    Error establishing a database connection
    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 localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?
    If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
    .............................................................................
    But, believe me that I enterd the database name and username and password correctly, and MYsql is running on my PC . It seems that everything would be ok, unless that the installation could not be countinued.
    I were changed the "localhost" by my PC IP, also.
    I had to say that I face this problem on a W2K Box, too. And Note That my webserver is IIS 5.0
    Please help .
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I use XP Home and xampp very successfully so if this gets too much, stop IIS and go get xampp.

    Can you do a phpinfo and check that all the parts are talking to each other ?

    Copy this into a new notepad file:

    <?php phpinfo(); ?>

    Save as 'info.php'
    put into the wp directory on your machine then use your browser to access it.

    hi dear podz
    I do that as u said. On xp box it didn't run, and I got following messege: "The Page Cannot Be Displayed".
    But it respond correctly on W2K box. But because of my poor knwoledge on PHP, I dont know what it means. The displayed page contains the following information:

    Hey great people. I KNOW this must be a boring topic for every one but too the poor people like myself that are haveing the same prolblems as taysay.

    I know that msSQL is operating properly. I connect to it with the mySQL Administraotr (from mySQL.com) PHP give me my info.php page Just great.

    AND I KNOW my wp-config.php is accurate.

    So WHAT the heck.

    Should I change the php.ini file to read:
    mysql.default_host = localhost?

    Still not doing the trick.

    Flavores:
    win2003 (all latest paches)
    php 4.3.11
    WP 1.5.1.2

    Yes, I am also having the same problem here. ANY help would me much appriciated. Same criteria as above. MySql is talking with PHP.
    Everything is "fine" except for the problem of connecting to the database. I am running win server 2003, with MySql and PHP on the same computer. Everything is accurate. My circumstances are almost, if not exact to johnfallen.

    Thank You, Max

    http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html -

    This dosnt solve the issue. I did turn off IIS, installed xampp, configed the new instance of mySQL, and BAM. WP working great.

    I DID NOT WANT TO USE Apache (nothing against it, just wanted to use ColdFusion and WP togeather under IIS), but after reading the problems with permalinking and all the likes, in the very informative articles listed above, i decided, heck with IIS 6. I just want WP running for my boss (how much of our world is getting things done for the boss?).

    Hope the weeked wad great.

    I, too, had the standard MySQL not found error message, as quoted above. Turns out I DID have to replace "localhost" with the actual location of the MySQL server. Then installation worked like a charm!
