I am configuring WP on my home OSX machine to use for testing and backup.
I configured php/apache/mysql all test ok. I am using mysql 4.1.x
I can log onto mysql from the command line using the name and password I gave myself. I can also load the db.
When I try to do this from wp-config.php I get 'Error establishing a database connection'.
I have verified the name and password from the command line. I can access mysql from the command line.
I am using localhost as the DB_HOST
What else can I check?
Is there a way to find out which of these items ( db, user, password, host ) is failing?
