I am new to wordpress but not to programming to please bear with me. I am trying to get a new wordpress project up and running locally using the wp-cli.
But when I run the following command:
wp core install --url=example.com --title=WP-EXAMPLE --admin_user=******* --admin_password=****** --admin_email=******
I get the following error:
Error: 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.
I was able to run the
wp config create and
wp db create commands without issue and a database was create so I know that the database username and password are correct. Is there a step I am missing?
The output of
wp --info is as follows:
OS: Darwin 17.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 17.6.0: Tue May 8 15:22:16 PDT 2018; root:xnu-4570.61.1~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64 Shell: /bin/zsh PHP binary: /usr/bin/php PHP version: 7.1.16 php.ini used: WP-CLI root dir: phar://wp-cli.phar WP-CLI vendor dir: phar://wp-cli.phar/vendor WP_CLI phar path: /Users/admin/code/wp-example WP-CLI packages dir: WP-CLI global config: WP-CLI project config: WP-CLI version: 1.5.1
Since there are so many blank items I feel as though I am missing something although I have following all of the steps that I have found in quick start guides for setting up wordpress from the CLI.
Thanks in advance.
