My host is lunarpages. My SQL is V4.0.15. My browser is IE. I uploaded all the files. Put in the wp-config.php details as follows:
/** WordPress’s config file **/
/** http://wordpress.org/ **/
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘t****_****’); // The name of the database
define(‘DB_USER’, ‘t****_**** ‘); // Your MySQL username
define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘******’); // …and password
define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.
$table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // example: ‘wp_’ or ‘b2’ or ‘mylogin_’
/* Stop editing */
$server = DB_HOST;
$loginsql = DB_USER;
$passsql = DB_PASSWORD;
$base = DB_NAME;
// Get everything else
I want to link from my home page to the blog. I create the link to the index.php page. When I click the link I get the following message
Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in youn wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?

Possible problems?: Should I have an entry for ‘localhost’ on the wp-config.php file? Then I created the sql database my host logon password ie t**** was added to my chosen password and database name ie t****_MySQLusername and t****_databasename. Should I use this on the wp-confi.php file or just use the MySQLusername and database name without the t****? Also do I need to put t****_ infront of my MySQL password?
