Support » Installing WordPress » Cannot connect during setup (I’ve checked everything)

    Not connecting to database during the installation, the database is up and I can connect using “mysql -u wpuser” from the terminal just fine but if I do it from the setup page it doesn’t work.

    Followed many guides and I’ve set this up countless times before so I’m sort of at a loss.

    Did a sanity check and did this guide to be sure. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-lamp-on-ubuntu-16-04

    Other apache sites work on that server as well.

    Server is hosted in Azure if it makes a difference

    I even tried doing the Grant all to remote and it didn’t work. (changed it back since then)
