I have been trying to get wordpress to work on my system with no luck.
I am using a linux box (fedora 12) and have all the necessaary s/w already installed and running, like apache/mysql/php. After making the wp-config.php file, and filling in the values of database/username/password, it keeps on giving me the same error
Error establishing a database connection This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down. * Are you sure you have the correct username and password? * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname? * Are you sure that the database server is running? If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
Just to be sure, i installed chyrp with the same parameters and it worked and that too within 5 minutes. I have even installed phpmyadmin just to be sure that my database is set up properly. I have droped and created my database countless times, tried with different usernames with no luck. Please help.
I think i should move to movable type.:@ :@ :@ :@
