Basic install on ipowerweb vdeck 3 not working. My cgi is enabled and I have created a database in Mysql phpMyAdmin – 188.8.131.52. I keep on getting the basic error so figure I am simply overlooking something basic. Any help would be great. Included is my error and my code.
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 acceptym.ipowermysql.com . 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?
wp-config.php file. I changed my DB host a few times trying to solve the problem… Hasn’t worked yet… Maybe I have not found the right one… localhost did not work.
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress1’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘blogger’); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘blog1’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘acceptym.ipowermysql.com ‘); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
