Support » Installing WordPress » Problems with the database

  • I’ve installed wordpress on my home server.
    I use IIS 5.0
    I have PHP 4.4.2 installed and working fine
    I have MySQL Server 5.0
    I use SQLYog as a frontend
    I’ve created a wordpress database
    I’ve updated wp-config to reflect the following

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpress’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘root’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘mypassword’); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    I deleted the database and recreated it from the MySQL CLI as per the steps in the Codex.

    But I still get the error
    Error establishing a database connection

    I’ve looked through the other topics in the forums for this error but couldn’t find any resolution to mine.

  • One standard response is to check with your hosts. They know your setup regarding MySQL and PHP, which seems to vary wildly between hosts — in fact they will probably be able to help you better than anyone here.

    WordPress is not setup on a host. I’ve set it up at home.

    check your error logs for anything else?
