    Hi,

    I’m having trouble with installing WP on my local server. I’m using MAMP and have got to the point where I choose a language for WP to run in, then it takes me to the login database name, username, password. I’ve checked my wp-config-sample and the username and password are the same as I am using, but it keeps saying it has error establishing database connection.

    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?

    In answer to the above, yes I am sure username and password are correct.
    Yes I am certain that hostname is identical
    Yes I am sure the database server is running.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem might be? I have even tried installing AMPPS to be sure and it doesn’t work with that either.

    Would really appreciate any suggestions.
