Database not working correctly

  • I have uploaded all of the files and created a database, but even though I’m positive everything is correct in wp-config.php, I still get a database error when trying to do anything with it. Any suggestions? I can gladly provide more detail if necessary.

  • What is the error you are getting? Sound like it might not be the default “Error Connecting To Database” error that wordpress gives you when your config file is wrong. Also, is this a fresh install of wordpress, or a transfer of an existing site?

    Im getting the same error message. Where could the config file be wrong? The secret code? Frustrating after all of that…

    I have seen it before where the user is set up for the database, but the user has not been given the proper permissions. To troubleshoot this, I would give the user you are using for wordpress all permissions and see if that makes a difference.

    Are you using XAMPP (local apache and mysql) Connor? Is your MySQL service running?
