I am having some trouble in creating a basic WordPress site on my localhost.
The wp-config.php file was not created so I created one from my wp-config-sample.php file
This produces an error
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected identifier “DB_HOST”, expecting “)” in C:\xampp\htdocs\wptest\wp-config.php on line 32.
When I look at the file with notepad ++ I can see an error on line 29
/** Database password */
define( ‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘—- ); no closing ‘
when I insert the ‘ and run the page I get a different error.
Error establishing a database connection.
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or that contact with the database server at localhost could not be established. This could mean your host’s database server is down.
I notice that when the database was created no tables were created.
I have had this previously and this has resolved itself later in the process.
Has anyone some suggestions how to fix this problem?
