Database connection error
I’m scratching my head on this one. I can’t get bbPress to install, and it always complains about connecting to the database.
The mySql server is remote, and I’ve tried adding it in with the hostname as well as the IP. No dice.
I know the default answer is a credentials problem, but if I use SSH and connect to the website that will host bbPress, I can do
mysql -h hostname -uusername -ppassword
and connect fine.
I can also use the above command to connect from my workstation, remotely. I’ve copy-pasted the credentials dozens of times, verified that it has read/write access to the DB, etc.
I’ve even copied bb-config-sample.php to bb-config.php and edited it manually, but it still can’t connect to the database.
Any ideas what I might try next? Thanks.
