I can't install a self hosted site.
The steps I have taken are:
1 - Downloaded WP.
2 - created a MySql database with ny host.
3 - edited the wp-config-sample.php file my with new
DB-name, Username, & password.
4 - Saved this file as wp-config.php
5 - Uploaded the whole package via ftp.
6 - went to http://www.mysite.com/WP/wp-admin/install.php
and I get an error message.
'username/password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost.'
This is the bones of my config file
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
/** MySQL database username */
/** MySQL database password */
/** MySQL hostname */
/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
I Have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Do I need to change the 'MySQL hostname' also?
Any help is greatly appreciated & will be reciprocated in the future!
