Support » Installing WordPress » installation error

  • i cant install it.
    i have hosting on lycos.co.uk
    ‘// ** MySQL settings ** //
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘saaztheband_com_1’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘saaztheband_com’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘*********’); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value’
    it gives me the following error:
    Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
    Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?

  • I got the same error, what did you do to fix it? I am using webmin with everything that should be installed. I get the same error you got.

    When I installed WP on lycos my config.php looked like this:
    ‘define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘myusername_uk_db’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘myusername’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ”); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value’
    the DB_Name and DB_USER can be got from http://www.tripod.lycos.co.uk/build/php4u/ and clicking the activate php button. Which you need to do to if you haven’t already.

    I have wordpress on my server. i am running clarkconnect not using lycos. Although I am getting the same error you got.
