So I recently downloaded and used this plugin as I was recommended by a friend.. Thing is as soon as I installed it, I was able to change the prefix from /wp-admin/ to /login-page/ just to try it.
A few minutes later, I got the message
“This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at (my server details). This could mean your host’s database server is down.
Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
If you’re unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.”
This has never happened to me before, and I’ve been using WordPress for some time. I figured it has something to do with MySQL database, but every time I log into my hosting (GoDaddy)and try to access MySQL it would just freeze and never load. I called Godaddy earlier today, and they told me it has to be some kind of error code on behalf of the wordpress program.
I am able to access my website’s new login page, but as soon as I click login, it would say Database error.
I was using numeric pretty link, along with the following:
Simple Local Avatars
Ultimate Page coming soon
Contact us form
and of course Rename Wp-login
I had no problems with my database as this site was running fine.
My best guess is that by changing the Wp-login to login-page, somewhere among the wp-config, there is a string of code or in MySQL that I would have to change?
