Greetings!
First post & first time user of HH && first time user cPanel

 

I am still waiting on the DNS to completely propogate

 

I am manually installing WP with intent of  going to WPMS immediately

I have done this multiple times on another hosting that uses a different panel

 

 

#1. No offense to the auto-installers, but I have heard if I use them I may run into problems with WP upgrading

Is this true or not?

 

#2. I can not get the install to work/make database.  Error:

 

 

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 localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.
 
 
Database Name             I have used both   'domain_name'  &' name'  
User Name                     I have used both   'domain_user'  & 'user'  
Password                       is correct (YES I am sure)
Database Host               localhost
Table Prefix                   '1233Q23_'
 
Any solutions available?

I decided to try the auto install, and it looks ok, but I am still waiting on the DNS

 

One annoying thing:

I want to transfer multiple domains from another hosting later, so I am confused about use of the folders

My anticipation was to use a new db and new folder for each domain I transfer

Softaculous install did install in the folder I specified, but now I am seeing

Admin url .... www.mydomain.com/folder/wp-admin

 

I am guessing that some .htaccess configuration is needed to see this as 

Admin url .... www.mydomain.com/wp-admin  ??

 

OR did I install wrong .. or am all confused

 

TYIA!

We've never seen this to be the case, Softaculous handles upgrades properly and I can't recall a single complaint about their implementation of upgrading.

I can not get the install to work/make database.



Database name and database username are both setup through cPanel in the MySQL interface. Both the prefix and DB name/user can be setup through there for your installation.

www.mydomain.com/folder/wp-admin



If 'folder' is a domain name that is pointed to us, as in mydomain2.com, you should be able to go to http://mydomain2.com/wp-admin and access your admin interface without having to go to http://mydomain.com/mydomain2.com/wp-admin

If this doesn't sort things out I'd suggest a support ticket, we can look at your account specific details/setups which will make it easier to figure out what is going on :)
