Initial Setup for Wordpress


New Member

I'm trying to figure out the way to setup Wordpress. I've created a mysql database and a mysql user, but wordpress still has some problems with the config.

Here's what I have so far:

// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'twelvepo_word');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'twelvepo_g22');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', '-----');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Hello jeffreylo,

Assuming that twelvepro is the account name and that you have DB name and user correct I'm not seeing anything wrong with what you have there.

What is the exact error you are getting?
You create the database and the user. Did you add that user to the database so that it has permission to access the database itself?
