I am getting the “Error establishing a database connection” when trying to install WordPress. I am trying to install using Firefox on my Win7 box on our LAN.
I have a CentOS box in our DMZ with mysql installed. I have created a DB for WordPress and can access it from a CentOS box on my LAN. I can login, create tables, and insert data. However, I can’t get the install.php to connect to the DB. I’m sure I have the correct DB name, username and password. For the database host, I’ve tried localhost as well as its IP address, 192.168.0.xx.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
