  • Resolved MichaelH


    Tested a UNIX hosting account at It doesn’t look like a Windows account supports MySQL at

    Assume domain is called
    Assume username is michaelh and the password they assigned my username is ABCabc123cba

    Here’s my wp-config.php settings:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘michaelh’);
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘michaelh’);
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘ABCabc123cba’);
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘’);

    Other notes:
