So I first made sure that virtual hosts would work with apache, added a line to etc/hosts and put a dummy index.php there. That works. I should mention that root does NOT have write access to this folder /some/path.

    Installing wordpress
    I created a database following instructions here.
    I tested the database using the testconnection.php file here

    I then added a configuation file to /etc/apache2/conf.d using the example given in /usr/share/doc/wordpress/examples. I linked the wordpress installation to my folder at /some/path. I threw out the old wp-config.php and used the wp-config-sample.php to create one tailored to my database info. But I keep getting a “error connecting to database” at the end. Anything I’ve missed?
