I'm trying to upload my website through GoDaddy ftp but I keep seeing the "Database connection error". I edited wp-config.php for the database connection and prefix. I've updated my sql file with the right prefix and edited the wp-option table before to upload. No matter what I do the message "Database connection error" is all I get. I strongly believe that this is due to wp-config database username and password which I have no idea how GoDaddy generate them and how to get them. Anyone know where I can find them?
Thank you very much for your help!
I finally solved the problem. When you create a database, you need to associate the user with the database via the GoDaddy admin, that's all there is to it and I wasted so much time!
