Database error

Unable to connect to database host localhost. Check the database data entered in the setup form.

 

Can't continue!

Link Up - Installation

Set up these variables

If you don't have a mysql database, ask your server admin to create one for you

 

 

****Mysql database host (try "localhost" if you are not sure)

Your mysql database username name

Mysql database password pass

Name of your mysql database link

Prefix of all tables

Full path to the folder where the scripts reside. If this field already contains some value, this value should be correct, don't change it if you are not sure it is incorrect. No trailing slash.

Example for Linux: /htdocs/sites/user/html/folder_name

Example for Windows: C:/somefolder/domain.com/folder_name

 

 

 

The part that im stuck is where I have the asterisks..the sql db i made up is called link...after that I drew a complete blank....

 

Any insite, I know the Admin can go in and take a look at the mess I created...

 

TIA...

Hello you need to set up the application to use the following.

replace cpaneluserid with your cpanel user id and this should allow your application to work.

 

 

servername = localhost

username= cpaneluserid_name

pass = pass

database = cpaneluserid_link

My database check list

 

-- databse connect ----

 

Be sure that in MySql you

 

1 - created the database

2 - created a user

3 -added the user to the database (go back to MySql and find the Add user

select the user and database, and then Add user to database)

 

 

Then to connect to the database in a script use:

 

host: localhost

database: yourCpanelName_databaseName

user: yourCpanelName_databaseUser

password: mypassword

 

* Note password is just as the password,

do not add the CpanelName to it.
