WordPress Installation Issues
- Document Root Issues – Because of potential conflicts in the .htaccess file, users must not configure multiple installations to share a single document root. If the experience difficulties, they must check if each cPanel account user can host only a single installation of WordPress in the document root directory. Only one domain or subdomain can host a WordPress installation in any directory. If the subdirectories are not a document root account users can make additional installations in subdirectories under the directory of the domain.
- Database Connection Errors – When WordPress returns a database connection error, the user must ascertain that the name of the database and password in the file are the same as the database credentials in their account. In a document root installation the file exists in the directory where the username stands for the cPanel account name. Username or password of the database can be changed by using cPanel’s MySQL Database interface. A username and password combination can be tested by running the command mysql –u db_user –p. Once the command is entered, the user has to enter his password. The system will respond with either a success or failure message.
