I am trying to install Word Press on an Apache host server for my domain http://www.sportsbusinesssims.com.
I downloaded the WordPress files, unzipped them, then uploaded them into a folder in the server called "wordpress" or http://www.sportsbusinesssims.com/wordpress
I then (as per instructions) opened the "wp-config-sample.php" page file, and entered the following information (password excluded and this is the entire page code):
/** WordPress's config file **/
/** http://wordpress.org/ **/
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'admin_sports'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', '#########'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'www.sportsbusinesssims.com/wordpress'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.
$table_prefix = 'b2'; // example: 'wp_' or 'b2' or 'mylogin_'
// Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language must be installed to wp-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
// to enable German language support.
define ('WPLANG', '');
/* Stop editing */
$server = DB_HOST;
$loginsql = DB_USER;
$passsql = DB_PASSWORD;
$base = DB_NAME;
// Get everything else
I then renamed the page "wp-config.php" and uploaded it back to the server at the wordpress folder.
I then (as per instruction: Run the installation file. Relative to where you uploaded the files, it'll be in wp-admin/install.php.) did just that...or what should be http://www.sportsbusinesssims.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php
AND got an "error" message that the file could not be seen, or...
The requested URL was not found on this server.
Apache Server at sportsbusinesssims.com
When I went to open this page:
I got this: "Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?"
What did I do wrong, and why do the instructions NOT tell you to open:
