    “Error establishing a database connection” means that there is a problem with the connection to your database:
    – a problem with the credentials stored in the wp-config.php file not matching what mysql expects.
    – Try reviewing the following codex for some guidance: http://codex.wordpress.org/Common_WordPress_Errors#Error_Establishing_Database_Connection
    – Also review this tutorial: http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-the-error-establishing-a-database-connection-in-wordpress/

    Learn from Synology Support as follow

    01 For Virtual host using MariaDB 5.0 (not MariaDB 10), Open user “root” password default “empty” create new database any name is ok in my case I using “wpdb”. Press go then leave MariaDB 5.0. Setup Virtual host I using for HTTP Backup server: Nginx and for PHP: PHP 5.6. That is all..

    02 I have reinstall my DS118 (NAS) from scratch. Take time but it is good to reinstall all package again. In web station I create 2 virtual websites in according above advice from Synology. From here avery website wordpress startup and is running fine.

    So my problem for this topic is solve. New problem appears about (FTP) but that I will issued an new topic.

    Thank Synology for there support…

    Best regards Rob73
