Support » Installing WordPress » Help with database install.

  • Hi I have set the following.

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘armadacomputers4’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘XXXXXX’); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value.

    Is this correct my ISP is freedom2surf and I currently have several databases running on our server with no problems. So i know they are all working okay.

    My ISP’s control panels lists the username and database name as ArmadaComputers4 so am unsure what to put in DB_NAME also I must have to point the code at the database location but also unsure where to put this reference.

    Your help in clearing this up is most appreciated.

  • I think localhost is wrong for f2s ?
    Put the “” there ?

    Okay I now have

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘armadacomputers4’);
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘armadacomputers4’);
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘XXXXXX’);
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘’);

    But still no joy, is the db_name supposed to be a table i need to construct inside armadacomputers4 or does the install program create this itself in this case should db_name just be the name I wish the database to be.


    forget that sorted thanks a lot, note to self. Once altering config file upload to server: doooooooooooooh
