I’ve read several posts here in an attempt to figure out on my own why I’m having trouble installing WP. Sorry for sounding like a broken record, but I just can’t figure out why this isn’t working.
The error message I’m getting is the usual “Error establishing a database connection!” etc.
Here’s what my wp-config.php shows:
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘galen5_wordpress’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘galen5_blogger’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘<snip>’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘familywebwatch.com’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
I’ve created a database, created and added a user, made sure the user has all the privileges available, tried changing the host name from “localhost” to “familywebwtach.com” and “familywebwatch” and “www.familywebwatch.com”….and still getting the same error.
I even tried asking my host if there’s anything wrong with my account that would make my database service (mysql) not function properly. They weren’t very helpful, and sent me on to someone who would do a more thorough search. But I want it NOW! 🙂
Any help is very much appreciated.
