Wordpress and UniServer: can't log on to DB

Recommended Posts

hello,

 

I am trying to install wordpress...

 

I followed the instructions exactly like the Wiki page and all I get is that it can't logon to the dB, the server may not be running, ect.

 

I did change all my passwords in the beginning to make it secure...

 

I added a dB called wordpress

made sure the user was: root

pass: root

host: localhost

 

I do use the link: http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

 

I also added a user and password and changed the wp-config.php to match. Still same as above: can't logon to dB, ect.

 

What should I do? I am using Vista (32bit) just for testing before I go into production.

 

Has anyone had any similar problems? I searched the forum but none with the same issue...and other issues I don't see resolved?

 

hmmm...

 

Can anyone give me a clue what I should do next?

 

Not very savy in this so need help...

A quick thing to try is changing this:

host: localhost

To:

host: 127.0.0.1

All the best

hello,

 

I changed the IP from localhost.

 

I also noticed that when i downloaded from the uniform server webiste the wordpress (plugins) it gave me install instructions and that seemed to work much better...

 

Either way worked great...
