Installing bbpress into a database with wordpress already on it.

  • OK should be simple right? Worked when I did it locally using MAMP and all was fine, then going live uploaded and …. nothing just the ‘ERROR: Could not establish a database connection’ message.

    WP is installed in the main directory and bb press is in

    I’ve gone over the wp-config files and they are the same, any ideas guys?

    // ** MySQL settings for BB** //

    define( ‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘lalalala_live’ );

    define( ‘BBDB_USER’, ‘barry’ );

    define( ‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘****’ );

    define( ‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’, ‘’ );

    define( ‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’ );

    define( ‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ” );

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’;

    // ** MySQL settings for wordpress ** //

    define(‘WP_CACHE’, true); //Added by WP-Cache Manager

    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘lalalala_live’); // The name of the database

    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘barry’); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘****’); // …and password

    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    $table_prefix = ‘wp_’;
