Support » Installing WordPress » error establishing connection

  • So i am using 000 webhosting as they give good free webhosting.

    i have used them before when i have been testing with wordpress before going out and purchasing domains.

    this time around though I am having issues with establishing connection to the database which i have created.

    not sure why this could be, is there any protocols that have been changed or put in place to prevent access from 000 web host.

  • We do not recommend using free web hosts for WordPress for precisely this kind of reason. There’s certainly nothing new in WordPress that should have caused this. Why not try installing WordPress locally instead?



    Esmi is right. Free web hosting is inviting trouble for your websites and it is very bad especially if you use them for your livelihood. You should use free hosting for testing purposes.

    We offer One-Click-Install hosting where you can install unlimited (as disk permits) number of WordPress websites using one click.

    Check the plans we offer here.

    Feel free to contact us via chat or ticket if you need more info.

    As per your query, go to wp-config.php file and check for db_name, db_user, db_password, db_host.
    Enter the data as per the database and username assigned in your hosting. Also check for the table prefix ex: wp_ in the database tables. Always make sure that hosting provider’s cpanel prefix is correctly setup in database name.

    db_host = ‘localhost’ (in Linux Hosting)
    db_host = ‘<Database_server_IP_address>’ (in Windows Hosting)

    Let me know if you still face issues even after doing all this.
