Support » Installing WordPress » Plesk Manual Install

  • Resolved jknetdesign


    I setup the config file and uploaded it.
    I tried so many variations of user names and passwords and I keep getting a blank page.

    My version of Plesk does not have a one-click install or application vault.

    Is there something I’m missing here.
    My clients site has been day for a day now.

    I don’t mind giving my database info if that’s what it takes to get this working.
    In Plesk it says – database name: donleach_wp and database server:

    Which one of these do input into:
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘database_name_here’);

    I created a user: jenanddon
    I put that into: define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username_here’);

    For that new user my password is: Dogoffice

    So my wp-config.php reads:

    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘donleach_wp’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘jenanddon’);

    /** MySQL database password */
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘Dogoffice1’);

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

    /** The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt. */
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    Am I supposed to the DB_HOST to something instead of”localhost”?

    Assistance is appreciated

  • jknetdesign,

    I suggest you to delete this database and create a new different one, with different name, different username and password (for security reasons). Here are the example lines of wp-config.php for you:

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘donleach_wp’);
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘jenanddon’);
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘Dogoffice1’);
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘’);

    Use server name instead of localhost. That probably is the source of a problem.

    Got it!
    Thank you!
