Unable to access WordPress database with MySQL Workbench
|March 9, 2014||Posted by forumadmin under TechQns||
So I’ve been told that the connection properties I need to access the WP database are in wp-config.php in the root of my WordPress directory. I found this file and found these values:
/** MySQL database username */ define('DB_USER', '??????????'); /** MySQL database password */ define('DB_PASSWORD', '**********'); /** MySQL hostname */ define('DB_HOST', '++++++++++');
Obviously I starred out the real values, but suffice it to say I tried to log into this database with MySQL Workbench with:
Hostname: ++++++++++ Username: ?????????? Password: ********** Port: 3306
I keep getting an “Unknown MySQL server host” when I try to connect. My WordPress site seems to work fine.
