WordPress - Wp-config





Becky
I hope this is the right place to post this Embarassed

I'm installing wordpress, so i edited wp-config like it says, and then uploaded it onto my site. Now i've done this, this error message is coming up:

Wordpress
Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at ns1.frih.net. This could mean your host's database server is down.

Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.


I think i've done something wrong in wp-config, could someone please explain to me what exactly is meant to go there?? Very Happy
I'm a complete newbie to Wordpress, so sorry if this post is annoying.
The wp-config bit is this :

// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'Wordpress'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'user'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

Although it looks correct on 1st glance your 'DB_NAME' & 'DB_USER' should be the same. Something like becky_wordpress for the username and db name.

If you need any help/or want me to install it for you, then feel free to PM me.
