Support » Plugin: FG Joomla to WordPress » Unable to connect to database locally

  • Resolved Jason Adams



    So I went the route of importing the Joomla tables to the WordPress database. I got all the tables added and seem good to go.

    For the life of me, though, I cannot connect to the database. Here’s the credentials:

    I’m getting:

    ERROR] Couldn't connect to the Joomla database. Please check your parameters. And be sure the WordPress server can access the Joomla database.
    SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (13)

    I know that’s correct because, well, WordPress is working. I checked with my host (WP Engine) to make sure there couldn’t be something else refusing the connection. They said it should work fine.

    Is the “URL of the live Joomla web site” supposed to be the joomla url or the WP url in this instance? Any other ideas?

    Thank you!
