  • I made a db and user name 11 characters long and it wouldn’t work. Shortened it to 6 characters and it works fine.

    Wondering what the max and minimum character number limit is?

  • If it’s your WordPress login the wp_users table looks like the user_login field could be upto 60 characters long. I was also able to create a WordPress login of just 1 character.

    Now if it’s the database login, that’s a different story–maybe your host could answer that question. I know my database login is 12 characters and looks like it could be quite long.

    Yes, it’s the db and user file name when you first setup WP, the same info you enter into config.php.

    Couldn’t figure out why the install wouldn’t work. As a last resort, renamed the 11 character filenames to 6 and it worked fine.
