    wordpress setting issue

    Hello sir,

    sir i purchased both domain and deluxe hosting from go daddy.but now i dont understrand how to setup hosting with domain.i installed wordpress on it but does not let me proceed whenever i want to login like when i type [link removed by moderator] then when i enter username and passowrd then an error comes which says the following.

    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.

    Basically when i setting up my sql database then i delete the default and add my database manually and therefore i donot remember my original username and password

    please solve this issue for me and if u need my detail about my account i will give through your official email.thanks

    If you purchased deluxe cPanel hosting, you can easily install wordpress from within Installatron inside the main cPanel dashboard. This alleviates a lot of headaches when doing a manual wordpress install. Hopefully this helps! If you still need assistance please call into our support and reach the Hosting department.
