[resolved] Dreamweaver + WordPress (6 posts)

    I'm working on my website (modestosound.com) through dream weaver, and we've got a blog section on the site. At the moment we have a page on the website where each individual is just posting normal text and we're re-putting the page to the internet every time. So in light of this, we wanted to be able to blog from where-ever, and straight from the website instead of having to use dream weaver.

    I'm quite at a loss of how to install it on the website, at the moment we have mysql installed, and I've created a database and I've uploaded the word press files. The last thing I'm trying to do is to actually run the install now. However it tries to run the install on the computer dream weaver is on, not the website.

    Can anyone help, or am I just not getting it right?

    It gives me an error;
    Error establishing a database connection

    I've checked the config and all of the information looks correct.

    More likely, you see an error regarding incorrect database connection information. You need to check this info in your wp-config.php file.

    For the log in information, I've got the user name and password I use to log onto our sql, and for the host I have modestosound@localhost

  5. Try changing host to just localhost.
