I am having problems and I seem so new @ this and you guys are going to laugh
But I cannot seem to get this wordpress to install….I get the error
Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
I have Yahoo as my webhost and I set up phpMyAdmin set up and I was wondering is this neccessary
also in the config file
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘bigboy’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘123456’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
I havent changed anything else and the defaut directory for the files on my website are ‘wordpress’
What else can I have possibly done wrong!
