Support » Installing WordPress » typical Dotster install database error

  • I am experiencing the typical Dotster database connection error. I have tried all the typical trouble shooting that is mentioned in this forum. I contacted Dotster and they confirmed my local host address.

    You mention that the string should look like this ‘’ the string I get does not start with db rather it is listed like this. ‘’ Could this possibly be the problem.

    This is my first install. I’d love to get this running but I’m about ready to throw in the towel.
    Thanx Jy

  • Did you ever get this figured out?

    dalefan’s problem looks like he/she is using MSSQL and WordPress requires MySQL. looks like a reasonable internal database host. Either using phpMyAdmin or ask your host if you can’t find the correct DB_HOST value.
