Support » Fixing WordPress » Problem moving Joomla to WordPress! Need Help!

  • Hello all!
    I am quite new to WP and need help in moving my Joomla website to WP. I have already searched the forum for this with no success.
    I have just installed the latest WP on my localhost for practice purpose (Win 7 Ultimate). I can access the WP panel. Then installed FG Joomla to WordPress to import my Joomla website. I have followed all instructions (Tools>>Import>>Joomla(FG)), etc.
    But, unfortunately, I keep getting the following error:

    [fgj2wp] Couldn’t connect to the Joomla database. Please check your parameters. And be sure the WordPress server can access the Joomla database.
    SQLSTATE[HY000] [1049] Base ’10_123_0_54′ inconnue

    Apparently, WP can’t access my Joomla live db.
    So, I exported the Joomla db from my live website (using phpmyadmin there), and tried to import the exported .sql file into WP (using phpmyadmin in WP). But, again the .sql file can’t be imported and I keep getting an error message.

    Can someone please guide me in a step by step manner to troubleshoot this mess?

    Thank you.
