This is a new installation of version 2.0 on my own website.
I’ve created my MySQL database, placed the files on my server (via frontpage import) and when I run the install.php from my browser I get…
“Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at”
I made sure I had everything in wp_config correct and even compared it against my PhpBB forum installation’s configuration to make sure. Obviously, the database name is different, but the rest is the same so I know my username and password is correct, as is the server.
Do any of the .php files need have the user execute file attribute? I’m not up much on unix (which my server uses) and its file attribute numbers. cpanel just shows me read/write/exec status of files. I’m unsure if anything needs exec status… nothing has it.
I’m wondering if this could be part of my problem?
