I'm trying to install wordpress 3.0.3 to the root of a domain with a new hosting provider who doesnt use the cpanel interface. the use something called Powered by Helm : Version 3.2.19
They are using mysql 5
In their control panel I can great a database and user and connect to the database as that user via myphpadmin no problem.
Once in there I see my database but no database tables
I don't think they use localhost but use the following
Internal Connection Host: mysql01 port 3303
When I ping and get a resulting IP no which I input into wp-config.php
I transfered all my wordpress install files via ftp to the root of the hosting domain input my 4 variables into the wp-config.php file unloaded it and ran the install ;
It didnt work with localhost or the IP number of the one from the pingtest
Copy of my typical wp-config.php settings below;
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'anyname'); - name of user i setup
/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', '12345'); - random password i setup
/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); - or IP no of supposed host
So I tried both localhost and the IP of the host suggested by the support team who host the domain but no luck.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated .
