Support » Installing WordPress » Problems setting up wp-config.php / Step 2

  • I hope this helps some one out. I just spent a long time figuring this out. I misunderstood the instructions and other tips found here. I read them that you need to change all “.” to “_”.
    First off, call your host, I can’t stress that enough. If they will, have them dictate exactly what you need to enter.
    What hung me up was I thought I needed to turn all “.” ti “_”. But I only had to turn the ones for the db_name. The user name and sql host used “.”
    Also my sql database host was different than my regular host.
    Good luck.

  • I’m trying to upload my wp-config.php file, but I don’t know how to upload it. This might be rather basic, but I need help! Thanks!

    malonk, FTP?
    I mean in the same way you uploaded the other files to your server.

    Obviously you need to open that file in your plain text editor (I prefer notetab from — there is a free light version), make your changes to the config file and save it under the name wp-config.php, then upload it as ascii using your file manager or ftp program.
