Hello, I’m new to DreamHost and the forums, so thank you in advance for any helpful suggestions. I am moving my wordpress.com site over to wordpress.org and I think I have taken all the necessary steps to set up my new site, pointsforgood.org. I have followed the detailed instructions laid out at Wordpress but I’m stuck here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Step_5:_Run_the_Install_Script
I have used FileZilla to load all of my wordpress files onto my site but when I go to http://pointsforgood.org/wp-admin/install.php I get the following error message:
“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 mysql.pointsforgood.org. This could mean your host’s database server is down.”
I’m pretty new to this stuff and I am just totally confused at how to proceed. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again.
