hey guys im racking my brain here i know how to set up a database.. and install a php script i have used this script before.. nothing has changed as far as installing it and setting it up.. well for the past few days ive had nothing but problems.. ive called my webhosting company and they said eveything is fine on their end.. i keep getting this freaking error that says cannot connect to database
and they said somthing about finding the path of the connection string
i keep getting this freaking error that says cannot connect to database
well if you get that freaking error, you should try something else…
It’d be nice to give us the error message.. Most of us here in the forums are good – really good – but we still cannot see something that is not here.
It can either be: wrong connection data – try to look them up - wrong port? - wrong host? - wrong user / database / password?
what script? etc..
here is a screen shot of my database i set up
and im trying to install this software.. its a chat room software
keep on getting error saying cannot connect to database.. and ive done this over and over and over several times
hehe Perfectedward.. isn’t that that Twilight dude?
Edit: I don’t think you’re query syntax is correct.. I have to go now though. Maybe someone can check it out for you.
I’m not sure if the $hostname value (as in the image) is right.
And did you change $password , $usertable , $yourfield before saving the config file?
I can help you out, contact me through my profile
Edit : You’ll have to provide your login info such that i can check it out myself.
