Can't Get Started w/Wordpress


Recommended Posts

I have installed the UniServer. What a great idea, especially for people trying to develop web sites.


Anyhow, I get the server to work all right. PHPMyAdmin runs fine. But I simply cannot get WordPress to work. After copying over the files into the www directory, and configuring the "wp-config" file, etc. I simply cannot get WordPress to run. I have a feeling that things are getting hung up while trying to connect to the database.


If you are a WordPress user, the wp-config file reads:


define('DB_NAME', 'wordpress');

define('DB_USER', 'root');

define('DB_PASSWORD', 'wordpress');

define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');


Maybe there is a mistake here, but I can't even get the install.php file to run. Again, I think because of failing to connect to the database.


So here's my questions:


1. Can someone tell me a sure fire way to determine if I have a database connection problem?


2. If you have any experience running WordPress within UniServer, can you offer me tips regarding what I am doing wrong?


Thank you very much in advance.
