Support » Localhost Installs » Local host Database problem

  • First of all, im a windows user.

    I’m using WAMP server to localhost and have just created a mysql database called “wet” using PHPMYADMIN.

    So then I have gone into the (www) directory on my c drive and created a folder called “wet”.

    when I go to the URL: http://localhost/wet/ it brings up an empty index directory which is fine, I expected that.

    However when I put the wordpress folder into the wet directory (with the www folder inside WAMP on my c drive) I try to go to:

    http://localhost/wet/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

    I then try and create a config file, in which it asks for the database name, so I put in “wet” and it doesn’t accept it! I get an error saying:

    error establishing data connection.

    This is strange as I don’t yet have a wp-config file..so no settings wrong in there. My WAMP server is perfectly fine as my other local site loads okay…im just trying username and password as “root”…

    Any ideas?
