I am using windows 11 and xampp.The port for MySQL in xampp is 3307(not default port).
When I tried to install WordPress it returns error “Error establishing on database connection”.
phpMyAdmin works fine. I can create database and tables using phpMyAdmin.
On installing worpress I got the error like below
Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or that contact with the database server at 127.0.0.1 could not be established. This could mean your host’s database server is down.
Tried the database host in different ways like localhost, localhost:3307, 127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.1:3307
Updated the host on xampp/phpmyadmin config.inc . Also updated the port on xampp/php/php.ini file and xampp/Mysql/bin/my.ini file.
Anyone can help me to install the WordPress using xampp with MySQL port 3306?
