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?
PHP version 4.3.9
MySQL version 4.0.22-standard
My site is hosted on a great free host, shyper. http://www.shyper.com
Wordpress install dir: http://bloom.shyper.com/blog
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'bloovesn_blog'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'bloovesn_'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', ********'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
The info is correct. Info provided by my host:
Perl $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:bloovesn_blog:localhost","bloovesn_","<PASSWORD HERE>");
PHP $dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "bloovesn_", "<PASSWORD HERE>") or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());
What am I doing wrong?
I am currently using CuteNews but it doesn't have much features...
Therefore, I'm upgrading to WordPress
Help would be appreciated! :)
