So, I am managing my own server, running macos10.4. I have installed MySQL, and enabled PHP. I have created a MySQL user with full rights to my wordpress database, and I have confirmed that it exists and that I know it's password via the Terminal.
But WordPress resolutely gives me the "No Dice" Error, it can't find my MySQL server etc.
I have tried everything I can think of in the DB_HOST field, including 127.0.0.1, it's internal IP (192.168.123.186), it's name (henry-herndons-imac.local), it's external address, and of course, localhost.
I have restarted, etc, etc, etc, etc....
I would like this to work!
