Support » Fixing WordPress » Accidentally changed database name

    I accidentally changed my db password. But I changed back and I still get the same error.
    I checked wp.config and everything appears perfect.

    I read previous answers and one issue was the same–someone accidentally changed the name and then changed it back.

    The advice was to reset the privs.
    If this is what I need to do, how do I do this?
    If not, what should I do?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Did you switch hosts? If so, make sure you are looking at the wp-config.php file on the new hosting service.

    Once you find a fix please tag the thread as resolved. Thank you.

    Can you check if the db user indeed has all the privileges to access the site’s database?

    If not, you can use phpMyAdmin to grant all privileges to the database being used.

    Do you have access to phpMyAdmin, Or CPanel.

    Check your DB and DB User credentials and Privileges.

    From cpanel file manager, I checked the privs in wp.config and they matched, where else should I check?

    I am changing hosts, but this blog was always with the same host–the original host was so unresponsive to support I had to rebuild rather than migrate and so this is a rebuilt blog–easy to rebuild again, but rather not. I have the content saved, but full backups were corrupt.

    Can you check if the db user indeed has all the privileges to access the site’s database?

    Yeas, sure…somewhere other than wp.config? I could easily be missing something or everything, this tech stuff is not natural to me.

    If not, you can use phpMyAdmin to grant all privileges to the database being used.

    How?

    I’d advise contacting your host and asking for help at this point. Be very nice and tell them what we have suggested and they should be able/willing to get you back online.
