  • Brilliant!

    Thank you for enlightening me to that subtle fact that should be obvious!

    I don’t know how its working in the old machine, but that’s OK, its
    working in the new machine now!

    Have a great day!

    I’ve tried the raw and generated passwords from the wp_users password
    database variable in the wp-config file and neither work. The password
    works fine in the old machine / database.

    I suspect that would generate a password error anyway, not a database connection error.

    Other than that, everything looks fine. I appreciate your time and effort Lyle. Let me know if any other ideas come to mind. I may try installing the older version of WAMP, but I’m afraid that would create a new nest of issues with Win 8.1.

    Yes, W is green and online, and yes I have access to all localhost utilities.

    Thank you for responding.

    I didn’t create a new database user.

    I am installing WAMP 2.5, the old installation was WAMP 2.2

    I’m also seeing a PHP error log filled up with these warnings:

    [15-Feb-2015 11:37:54 UTC] PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library ‘c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.5.12/ext/php_intl.dll’ – The specified module could not be found.

    That subdirectory is in place and so are all the files the log complains about.

    I finally got this working. Had to use “Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags for WordPress” plugin and use the links generated by that in the “Add Link to Facebook” picture setup page. Regular short tags from the library (like wouldn’t work. For some reason featured image selected from the media library on the post page worked, but custom short links wouldn’t.

    For a short while I had an image in the post page setting that normally says “No images in the media library for this post”, but then I lost it. Not sure how I got that to work, nor how I lost it.

    Despite the pain of getting link images to work, I did try several other facebook plugins and this was the most intuitive and easily configured and easily working for the basic functionality of all of them. I would still recommend this plugin over the others…

    The URL buried in the fbextenal-a link works in the facebook debugger…

    I just fixed this after alot of digging. I’m developing locally at /localhost using WAMP in Windows (I suppose that’s obvious.) Found the answer at How-to-enable-Apache-modules

    The problem was (for me) that Apache installs with rewrites disabled so
    I had to enable rewrites_module.

    Scroll down to the windows section of the link and here’s what it says:

    “WampServer. This is by far the simplest option. If you have installed WampServer just click on the icon in the task bar, hover over the Apache section in the menu that comes up and then hover over the modules section. You will be presented with a list of modules. Simply click on a module name (rewrite_module) to enable it (or disable it if it is already enabled). A check mark next to a module indicates that it is enabled. WampServer will automatically restart the Apache service after you enable a module.”
