I've googled and searched but no answer yet...
Am getting the apparently typical message while attempting to install WordPress; "Error Establishing a Database Connection"
Self hosted on RedHat Enterprise Linux ES 3.4
MySQL version 4.1.16-Max
PHP version 4.3.2
This is a fresh install
The database is up and verified by both command-line and phpMyAdmin. Am not using MySQLi but have reset all passwords to the older hash mechanism as well as starting MySQL using the -oldpassword switch. I can login to MySQL as both root and the "wordpress" user.
The database has been created and wp-config.php certainly looks correct. Please see below;
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'blog'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'wordpress'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'xxxxx'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
Any assistance is appreciated!
