Hi! I’m on my third blog software and 30th installation attempt. This is the error message I get:
Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
Apache server – have Telnet/Shell access but have never used this kind of interface and don’t know what I’m doing. Has PHP and SQL capability, not sure which versions but they do offer b2 blog support. I tried installing that as well and couldn’t get it to work either. I’m on a Mac OSX, if that’s of any help.
I’ve had trouble with step 3 from the installation guide: I have access to a MySQL admin tool, but it does not allow me to do anything related to adding users or setting their access privileges. As far as I can tell, my admin access privileges have been set everywhere the admin interface allows me to set them.
Would anyone be willing to walk me through the install or tell me what I’m doing wrong? I want my life back.
