I have read most of the posts in the forum and still cannot get it to work.
Here is my configuration:
Fedora Core 3 with all patches as of today (25.11.2004).
I created the necessary user (wordpress) and the database (wordpress). The user has a password.
MySQL is running => I can logon.
Apache is running => I saw the appache welcome screen.
PHP is running => I created the testphp.php file
Wordpress is giving me the above error.
What I have tried is to create a new user and create a new database.
I am trying to install WordPress on my local machine. I do not have the domain setup (as I am just testing) so I access the site using http://localhost/xxxxxxx. I have also tried using the 127.0.0.1 and the “real” ip: 192.168.10.104.
Is there any way that I can find out where the error is?
Thanking you in advance for any help given.
