Can’t connect to database during Step of installation (latest stable build)

  • farleys-bow-tie


    I created a database with full privileges and a user on the host and then entered it into the script. I received a message saying there was a failure to connect to the database.

    The user name and password fields were populated with the admin login and pass from my WordPress installation. I used that login and name to create a user for the database, and then I re-ran the script with the default entries. Still can’t connect.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You are the only one who can resolve this, unless you have local help or remote help you trust to look at the connection details provided by your host, and you config, to find the problem.

    If there’s a failure to connect, maybe the host setting is incorrect? What are the settings in your WordPress config? If you’re using the same database, then the settings here will be the same, other than the table prefix, which comes later. That should be unique inside your database.
