  • 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 to make sure you are using the correct values in your wp-config.php.

    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.
