I am trying to setup a blog site.
I have the following setup on a SOLARIS BOX (Sparc 64 - Sun Blade 100)
Mysql 4.1.10 (max)
- Apache works , PHP pages show up
-I ran all the tests "mysql-test-run" and everything was successful
- I created a DB , USER successfully in mysql on my HOST
$mysql -u wordpress -h blade -p
It connects to the DB and when I do
I see the database. Also when I say "use webpress;" it works;
So when I setup the above DB values in "wp-config.php" and try to run
It says cannot connect to the database.
Any suggestions why it cannot connect through the PHP script/browser.
BTW I am running the browser from a windows machine , connecting to my Sun machine but when use browser on the sun box the same thing. So i dont think its a browser or client/server issue.
Is it a Permissions issue ? The mysql daemon is owned/run by root and the mysql directories are owned by root.
