Aaaaahhhhhh. New to WordPress and decided to learn it via the lynda.com tutorial
I have got to the section where I bring up the browser to handle the wordpress installation and when I put in my details I get this message… Error establishing a database connection. I may give up on wordpress before I have even started!
Database name – I have put this in
Username – root
Password – working locally no password needed so the lynda.com man says
Database Host – localhost
Table Prefix – wp_
Please could someone advice to help me carry on with the tutorial, I have hit a brick wall here : (
