I’ve read posts on here dealing with the troubles I’m having and done what those said to do, but I still can’t get the wp-config file to work. Every time I change something and try it, I end up with the “Error establishing a database connection!” message.
Here’s what I have for the settings right now:
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘rainbowjoule_mysql’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘rainbowjoule_evilcb’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘*********’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
I’ve changed this around many times and still haven’t gotten it to work. I know my username and password are correct, and that I need “mysql” for the database name, but I’m not sure if the “rainbowjoule_” parts are needed or not (but again, even without them nothing works) and I have a feeling I’m going to have to change the host name, but I’m not sure.
I know my database is running and working and everthing, but I still can’t figure this out. Any help would be great. Thanks.
