I have a client that absolutley wants to stay on free Godaddy hosting and install Wordpress. As I'm sure you're aware, you can't simply "install" it from their free applications if your on free hosting. I keep getting a
"Error establishing a database connection".
I've Googled, Binged and Yahooed everything under the sun and can't figure it out. I just need to know that either there's a way to get this working or not. I've changed the wp-config.php file numerous times, deleted and remade databases but nothing is connecting.
The full error is:
Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at wordpress.db.4441573.hostedresource.com. This could mean your host's database server is down.
•Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
•Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
•Are you sure that the database server is running?
If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
