Support » Installing WordPress » (Not Typical Problem) Error establishing a database connection

  • Hey guys. First off, I have fixed this problem in the past but I forgot how. If someone can answer the problem, I promise I will write it down this time. grr.

    So here is the deal, I am running mySQL 4.1.13 and I am getting the DB error above when I use a known good username and password. I can even get into mysql using the CLI(command line) w/ no problem.

    I remember a while back, I was instructed to go into mysql as root (CLI) and change something about the user… I know it had to do with the password, but beyond that I’m foggy. It was something to do with changing the password type so it was compatible or something. Grrr, does anyone know what I’m talking about?
