I would like to install the almighty and powerful WordPress, but still no luck.
I googled a lot.
So here is my problem: I already filled in the fields with correct data and without typos, but it still says: Error establishing a database connection.
First I thought I have problem with the ‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’ but I contacted the support team and they said it’s localhost.
Maybe I do something wrong with prefixes? When I make a MYSQL database with the wizard in cpanel, every database has a prefix by default: “overmyst_” .
My database name (whith prefix): overmyst_wordpress
My username (whith prefix): overmyst_wpadmin
Here is how my wp-config looks like:
and I’m not sure about the prefix.
$table_prefix = ”;
I’ve tried many combinations like ‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’, so removing the prefixes from the username and DBname or $table_prefix = ‘overmyst_’; etc…
Can someone help me how to fill these fields to get my WordPress work?
I’m sure I’m stupid but what can I do, I’m still a rookie in WordPress.
To sum up:
“overmyst_” is a prefix I receive automatically.
This will be my homepage, I’ve bought my domain+host at onebesthosting.com
I’ve already installed Datalife Engine succesfully, but I would rather use WordPress because it’s lightyears better for me and much more friendly.
