Support » Installing WordPress » More of that wp config help, please!

  • Here’s my stuff:
    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'opheliac_wordpress'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'opheliac_wordpress'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '*****'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', ''); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.
    $table_prefix = 'opheliac_'; // example: 'wp_' or 'b2' or 'mylogin_'

    I’ve tried changing the table prefix (left as it was, and also opheliac_wordpress), the DB host (tried: NS2.LIMITEDWEBGROUP.COM), etc but I’m getting this:
    “Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in youn wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
    Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running? “
    I currently have my old index.php redirected, but the blog will be at
    My head is foggy, so I’m likely leaving out something you need to know… any help would be REALLY appreciated!!! 😀

  • Try entering ‘localhost’ as the DB_HOST entry.

    Yup, I did try that. It gave me the same error (should have mentioned that, duh!), so I tried the other things. Any other ideas???

    There is so little that can go wrong.
    Of note is the fact that the database name, and the database username and password are set by your service provider, and I find it strange that it should have ‘wordpress’ as part of it, unless you wanted it that way. Check those again, and you will be home. 🙂

    I set up new a new DB, account, etc. I’ll try it with the default account info…

    Okay… I feel like a moron… when I set up the wordpress database, I didn’t see that it only would accept a database name with so many characters… after I changed the config info to “opheliac_wordpre”, it still didn’t work, but then I swapped in localhost for the DB host… and viola!
    *shakes head*
    Sorry to trouble you all with this… and thanks SO much for your help…!
    *mumbles* Duh… duh… duh…
