So I've been banging my head against the wall trying to figure out what could be the problem with this. When I get to step 5 and running the script I get a web page that says "Error establishing a database connection". I have checked the Username/Password for my MySql user that has been designated to the wordpress database, and those are correct. I made sure that in the user table the host for my user says localhost.
Thus far I've made no major headway on the issue and all I seem to find are troubleshooting steps that indicate my database configuration could be wrong. I am pretty new to this and am not sure what to include other than that. Does anyone have some steps for resolving this?
