Upgrading from XIV to XV Problem: Error establishing a database connection


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to migrate a local Wordpress Installation on Uniform Server.

So far after doing a database backup, tried extracting all files replacing old ones, then importing the database backups, but same error.

Also tried the line: innodb_force_recovery = 1

I'm afraid it didn't work either

I did create a copy before attempting to upgrade, so there's no data loss, but I'm unable to properly upgrade from the old version.

Thank you well I fixed it.. I noticed in phpmyadmin even after restoring the database with custom name it wasn't recreated.

So: 1. renamed the old database folder with the custom name.

2. created a new database with the same old name

3. imported the database backup.

and all good now 🙂

Thank you!!
