I see that this board is largely for Wordpress users but that stinking Joomla! forum always screws up and I can't login.
So I am trying to install Joomla into a folder within an existing website which will be moved to its own domain later on. I have done this before, except I host with Bluehost which has a Joomla! installation button right in the cPanel. The web host that I am creating this website on does not, so I was trying to manually install Joomla! for the first time, following these instructions - http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1944/302/
I did everything as instructed but when I try to visit the site @ www.selectyourtickets.com/Giobean I get this message "Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL"
I changed the configuration.php file to the following:
var $dbtype = 'mysql'; // Normally mysql
var $host = 'localhost'; // This is normally set to localhost
var $user = 'selectyo_giobean'; // MySQL username
var $password = 'xxxxxxx'; // MySQL password
var $db = 'selectyo_giobean'; // MySQL database name
var $dbprefix = 'jos_';
Which should be all correct, unless there's something that i don't know about? I created the user and databases called giobean, and selectyo is the prefix that was put before them, I don't know the technical term for it but it is the username when I sign in to the cPanel. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm desperate here... Thanks!
