Support » Installing WordPress » New Self Hosted Install Database Connection Fails

  • I am creating a self hosted WordPress site for the first time. I have self hosted Drupal sites working already, so I’m not new to most of it. The wp-admin/install.php is complaining about not being able to reach the MySql database. wp-config.php has the assigned database name, user, password, and host is ‘localhost’. I can connect from the command line with myslq -u username -p just fine. What am I missing?

    Versions:
    MySql 8.0.23
    Wordpress 5.7
    Linux Debian 10, kernel 4.19.181-1 (x86_64)
    Apache2
    php 7.3.27-1

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]
