  • Then I trying to install all the time I get this 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 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.)

    My config file info.

    // ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘db462713862’);

    /** MySQL database username */
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘dbo462713862’);

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

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

    /** 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’, ”);

  • Have you added the user to the database in the back-end?
    Have you given that user full privileges to use the database?
    Check all credentials to make sure that’s not the problem.
    Contact 1and1.

    Please provide any more info that you can.
