I am new to WP but have managed to get a new site up and running using the 5 min install – great!
However, I am now trying to create a second site on the same server (using easyPHP as with successful first install above)
But on attempting to run install.php from new website I receive a database error:
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?
The database exists, the username and password are correct – I do recall seeing something somewhere about prefixing databases if you want to run more than one WP site? Would that be the problem?
Am I expecting things to be just too simple!?
Any advice welcome….
Thanks in advance!
