[Resolved] How to install WordPress on Synology server??

  • As long as your server meets these requirements, you should be able to follow the Installing WordPress instructions.

    It is installed now. I copied the “wp-content” folder from my old blog and but in on the new one. I also had a backup file for the old phpMyAdmin database and I uploaded it into the new phpMyAdmin database. However, the two refuse to connect. I cannot get the new WordPress to recognize the new phpMyAdmin as the database it is supposed to be using. Any suggestions??

    Review http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php to make sure you are using the correct values in your wp-config.php.

    Also see:

    Everything is correct and in order as it should be.

    I know what the problem is. Somewhere in the wp-content folder or in the phpMyAdmin database, it is telling the blog to go through the old server to load the files or page. When I open the main page (which should be index.php), it loads fine and the blog APPEARS to be working. Then I click on a link and it takes me to a page that says: “Error establishing a database connection”. When this comes up, the URL is the IP address to the computer that the blog used to be on. That is how I know that the blog is trying to load through the other computer rather than load through the Synology Cube Station like it should be.

    I know all of that but I do not know how to fix the problem. Here is the link to the blog if you need to see for yourself what it is doing:


    The link is not appearing for some reason. I apologize for that.

    If you are getting an “Error establishing a database connection” you likely have a wrong value set in your wp-config.php. Talk to your host and ask them what the DB_HOST should be if you don’t know that value. If you are self-hosting then get MySQL working and make sure you can access the database with something like phpMyAdmin.

    MySQL is working and it appears that phpMyAdmin is working. I checked the DB_HOST name and it matches the on in the wp-config file.

    Instead of saying “Error establishing a database connection” when a link it clicked, it now says “Connection Interrupted. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.” I am guessing this means the same thing as “Error establishing a database connection.” The blog is still trying to connect to the other computer because it still has the old IP address in the URL when a link is clicked.

    I fixed the problem. I deleted everything and did a fresh install. WordPress is connected to the new database and all of the pages and links work like they are supposed to. Thank you for your help.
