[Resolved] Error establishing a database connection – problems with my wp-config.php item?
So I’ve been having some trouble installing the newest version of WordPress. Did some research into the problem and I can’t seem to find out exactly why I’m getting this error.
What is happening is when I install wordpress (after configuring the wp-config.php) file, I go to the URL to install and I get the “Error establishing a database connection” error page. So this could mean one of two things: the database I set up is down or the details I edited in the file are incorrect. The database IS up and I confirmed it up and running with my web host. So this leaves the wp-config file….
Here are some details to clue you all in as to how I might be doing it incorrectly (using Dotster if anyone has any hands-on info). I’m “x”ing out some of the info for security reasons:
Datebase name: db100xxxx_wordpress
So I’ve tried different combinations – using “wordpress” as the database name for the file, using just the db100xxxx “number” for the database, etc. and I keep on getting the error.
Any help or advice? I’ve installed several wordpress blogs but I’ve never come across this sort of error. Thanks!
