Re: Zero W - Followed Wordpress installation ~ Not working.

Sometimes a wise move is a nights break. I should be on at some point - just drop a post here and it will email me if you get stuck. One question - are you running Buster or Stretch on the Zero W? I have a spare (till Tuesday at least) that I can format up if needed. Buster. This the code on my php...

Re: Zero W - Followed Wordpress installation ~ Not working.

Okay, I've checked users password: I've checked User I've checked all other details. All I can remember is that when I set the username for The wordpress setup... Not the database... the setup {Actual loging in to database}, I used root...I think this is what's wrong but I don't know how to change it.

Re: Zero W - Followed Wordpress installation ~ Not working.

Best thing is to create a WordPress user that has limited abilities within the databases unlike root who can do everything. It’s not safe to use root as the user - anyone who can hack WP will have full access to every database on the system :cry: "CREATE DATABASE wpdata;"... In other words: create ...

So you are running (good start). There is a wp config program (php) - something like WP-config.php and it should have define('DB_NAME', 'database-name'); define('DB_USER', 'database-username'); define('DB_PASSWORD', 'database-password'); define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); Do you have that? If so: 1) C...
