[Resolved] Error establishing a database connection
I am quite sure you guys get tired of seeing posts about this topic but I can’t seem to find the specific information I need. After not being able to successfully install WP, I contacted our web host and got from them both the database IP address and the Server name as well as verified the assigned user name, password and database name. I am able to get into the database with this information using SQL Server Management Studio Express so it all appears to be correct. However, when I run install.php with that same information, I get the apparently famous error – “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 (known good server name).”
