I am trying to setup WordPress 1.5 on a Mac OS X machine for testing.
After setting up wordpress, mysql and starting php, when I run wp-admin/install.php I get an error screen saying Error establishing a database connection.
This is OSX 10.3.8 on a local machine. I installed mysql standard. version 4.1.10a. Mysql was installed via the installer. WordPress folder was moved Library-WebServer-Documents with the folder named wordpress. I created a mysql database called wordpress. I am able to check status of database and it says it exists and is running. I followed the tutorial at http://maczealots.com/tutorials/wordpress/
I need some advise on what else to look for.
