I am trying to install WordPress on my local iMac for trial before publishing my blog on the internet. I think everything is installed correctly, but I continue to get the "Error establishing a database connection" message when I try running the install.php file. A few words about my setup;
I am running OSX 10.4.7 - with an administrator account
I have PHP 4.4.1
I have MySQL 5.0
I have WordPress 2.0.4
I have setup the wp-config.php file with the appropriate DB name, user name & password, and have localhost as the location (I have checked this numerous times). Any help would be appreciated.
