Problem creating database wp (7 posts)

    Hi.

    I've try to install a new wp web, but it's impossible. The instalations says:
    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.

    (with install.php) but my configuration in wp-config.php is correct.
    I have two wp webs and I have make an upgrade and all is working ok, but I don't understand why it's impossible the installation. The host, and the Mysql is right (in fact, the others two websites that I upgraded are working properly.
    Please, help me!!!!

    Thanks a lot!!

    Try asking your hosts for assistance. We can't really help with this.

    Have you confirmed the connection details by connecting to the database using phpMyAdmin?

    Yes. I can access using phpMyadmin and I have one database with the correct name, with admin user but the database in the installation proccess cant create the tables. i don't understand nothing. With the others two wordpress i have no problems. The unique diference is the other two wordpress are older and only i make an upgrade (i don't have to install without tables)

    I have one database with the correct name, with admin user but the database in the installation proccess cant create the tables.

    there might be a permissions issue with the database. Best to talk to your host.

    Hello world.

    Finally my problem was my database name was wrong. I changed this word in the wp-config file and it worked!

    Congratulations for me!!
