WP Installation Hosted by Cbeyond Config HELP!! (7 posts)

    Please help me installing WP on my Cbeyond web server.

    ERROR MSG:
    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 mysql. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    SQL Site Info from Cbeyond:
    SQL Express Database State: Enabled
    Server By Name: SQLExpress3.mql1300.MSSQLServers.com,1433\SQLExpress3
    Server By IP: 204.202.248.172,1433\SQLExpress3
    Database Name: cas769
    Login ID: cas769sql

    wp-config.php:
    define('DB_NAME', 'cas769');
    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', 'cas769sql');
    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '**********');
    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'mysql');
    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Try confirming your database credentials with your host.

    Can you tell me how you actually created a msyql database on your cbeyond hosting? I'm trying to set up a site for a client and I am not seeing a way to create a new database through their control panel. And their tech support is utterly worthless.

    Hello there,

    Did you hapen to figure this out? i'm trying to install WordPress to Cbeyond because they default wordpress into a wordpress folder and I NEED it on my root so I am needing to manually do it.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Lorne

    Since I just got pinged on this topic, I wanted to mention that I was unable to get anywhere with CBeyond tech support and I convinced my client to move to better hosting.

    Thanks for the reply.

    That's unfortunate news, as I know my client won't want to move from cbeyond. They aren't the best but I have to deal with them.

    Personally I use justhost. It's the best I've come across.
