I have an odd problem I'm hoping the group can help with. The problem is this:
- I have a few situations where I load the Wordpress environment without the overhead of the GUI (details)
- I am able to do this in most environments without a problem but a few (two laptops to be precise) refuse to load Wordpress and instead give me the following error:
What's so very strange is that:
- The db connection attributes are correct. This has been validated both by logging in manually from the command-line (using the credentials in the wp-config file); not to mention that this same
wp-config.phphas no problem loading the database when it is loaded normally by Wordpress.
- The files, OS, PHP version, even the DB connection parameters are all exactly the same on computers that work versus those that don't.
I'm not sure were else to look. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
