OK … I’ve got a LAMP instance (Ubuntu 11.10, Apache2, MySql 5.1 and PHP 5.3.6) … I’ve opened MySql up so far I feel like I’d get a ticket downtown …
Anyhow – any new ideas on how to get past the dreaded “Database Not Found” error?
Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at DB_HOST. This could mean your host’s database server is down.
Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
If you’re unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
I’ve tried ‘user’@’127.0.0.1’ and ‘user’@’localhost’. I’ve verified passwords and mysql access by the ‘user’ using the ‘password’.
Any help anyone can supply would be appreciated!
