I tried to install WordPress on a new domain, which usually works like charm.
In this case the domain name either might have been too long or the "double extension" like "co.uk" gave a problem resulting in "database connection failed".
I shortened the user name, deleted the database, checked the database access ("ALL" rights from localhost) - but I am still getting the error.
This brings me to the following questions:
- What happened?
- Is this a known error, which I could circumvent prior to installation?
- How can I fix my issue now?
Thank you very much in advance!
