Support » Fixing WordPress » Installation Step 6 — Error establishing db connection

  • 6. Run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in your favorite web browser.

    A: MySQL database properly set up and functioning (no tables of course, but I figure that’s what the installer will do)

    B: Files and directories unzipped OK

    C: FTP to root directory looks OK.

    D: Double checked db name and user name and password. At my hosting site, I notice that “MySQL running on localhost as myusername@localhost, so I figure local host is correct. Not sure where to look next.

    Would appreciate a suggestion or two

    Who is your host ?
    What sort of webhosting control panel do they have ?

    I figure local host is correct
    If you spelled it like here – in 2 words – that might be the problem.

    Network Solutions is my host. They have a php management system. localhost is treated as one word within the setup files. And thank you both for the quick replies
