I maintain our Church website, using FrontPage. I would like to convert to WordPress, but need to retain the old site until I build the new one. Therefore, I am trying to install WordPress on the host server - Register.com - along with my FrontPage site.
I have created an SQL database, which is located in the databases folder of the root directory. I have loaded WordPress into a "blog" subdirectory in the public folder. I have double-checked all the entries in my wp-config.php file and they seem to be correct. However, when I go to install.php in my browser I get the "Error establishing a database connection" msg.
I have read everything I can find in the forums and realize many other people have had this sort of problem in the past. However, nothing I have tried from previous threads has helped. I apologize for bringing up such an old problem again, but really need some help.
Thanking you in advance,
