I've been trying to upload wordpress into my music/portfolio site http://www.gordonroque.com (My domain host is 1and1.com)
I keep getting a wordpress error page when I do the whole admin install thing. There is nothing to indicate that my database server is down. The usernames and passwords are correct. I've put the web address (www.gordonroque.com) as the host name in the wp-config file. Could that be it?
The ftp client is working fine. The wordpress file and the config php file are in the root directory.
I've tried everything I can think of. I've deleted any files in the root that are index.html. I've made sure the info in the wp-confg.php file is correct. I've pointed the site to the new wordpress file in the root.
I have another wordpress file for my separate blog site (http://www.wherepianosroam.com) in the root, and it is working fine. The installation for that site a couple of weeks ago was super smooth and easy.
Please help! I really like wordpress, and I still have a lot of work to do to set up this site before I get started on a very pressing new project.
When I try to go to the web address (www.gordonroque.com), it says error establishing database connection. So I guess it is a database problem. How do I fix this?
