  • Okay. You know how you write the database name and all of that in wp-config.php? Well, I think I’m putting the wrong thing in the wrong places… Here’s what I’m putting…
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘’); // The name of the database
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘’); // Your MySQL username
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘——–‘); // …and password
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’; // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    The db name should be what your host gave you. The one you have there will not work…that is a url. I also suspect that the user is wrong. It is possible that the names could be like this:
    Many hosts set up mysql databases like the above. I would contact them about this issue.

    Thanks a bunch…
    I guess I gotta IM Stacey now.. -sigh-
