[resolved] Error connecting to database- double databases (2 posts)

    Actually using 3.4.3, but it was not a choice.

    I have two WP databases. One which is merely a shell which only houses my credentials as the WP owner. My config file has always pointed at it, even though all of my posts+ (including all subsequent plugins) are housed in a second db. Everything worked until I changed the passwords on all the db.

    I changed the config to the new password. Result: connection error.

    Should I or can I bypass the shell and point directly to the db where the bulk is considering the message from WP says it cannot connect to the bulk db?

    Yes. Bypass the shell and point to the bulk file.
