Netfirms Strikes Again (4 posts)

    Hi everyone, I already deemed myself today's Netfirm noob, so no bashing please. :)

    Anyway, I'm looking to do a real install of WordPress with my Netfirms hosting and I've run into a DB issue. I went and created a database and entered in all the proper fields into the wp-config.php file but when navigating to http://www.myname.com/wp-admin/install.php, I get an error saying "Error establishing a database connection". Anyone know of anything I can possibly do to fix this and get WP up and running? I've doubled checked my DB name, username, password and the hostname (which is 'mysqlhost' instead of 'localhost'). Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Looks like I can't edit it now, anyway, here's my database connection info:

    define('DB_NAME', 'XXXXXXXX');
    define('DB_USER', 'YYYYYYY');
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'myPassword');
    define('DB_HOST', 'mysqlhost');

    Perhaps the database user doesn't have permissions. Just a quick thought.

    MYSQLHOST should be in capitals, I think.

    Also, make sure the WP user an 'admin' user in the NF control panel. It needs write access.
