Hi guys, I’m trying to get a wordpress local install working on my Mac.
I’ve recently set up a database, username and password using the MySQL client as per the instructions in the wordpress codex. That part is ok.
When I go to the local site on my computer I’m prompted by wordpress to set up the wp-config.php file. Putting in the same details that definitely work with the MySQL client returns an error.
Manually updating these details in the ‘wp-config-sample.php’ file and renaming it as ‘wp-config.php’ also doesn’t work – I’m now greeted with a big bold message: “Error establishing a database connection”.
From what I can gather, php and mysql are not communicating with each other properly.
I’ve changed the apache 2 configuration file found in ‘etc/apache2/httpd.conf’ and uncommented the line which loads the php5 module:
LoadModule php5_module libexec/apache2/libphp5.so
and restarted the apache server. This has still not fixed my problem. I’m stuck on what to do next… help appreciated please!
