Hello all WordPressers!
I am trying to install this software locally on a computer with slacware linux 10.2. It is running apache with php version 4.4.2 I also have mysql version 4.1.14, and I have already created a new user, mysql, as the root user for the mysql application. I also created a database called wordpress for the CMS to use. I put this info into the wp-config.php file, and I always get the message that there was an error establishing a database connection. I have done a million searches and tried to install different versions of mysql to fix this, but nothing is working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
