  • Stage 2 fail to connect to DB

    this is what I'm getting on stage 2......

    Attempting to attach to database...

    You have specified a non existent database. Trying to create one now...

    Trying to connect again...

    Connect failed again! Please ensure that the database and server is correctly configured and try again.

    Could it be something to do with my username / pass - maybe the pass is wrong? Or is it a bigger config problem...

    Make sure you edited your config.php file to point to your db server, your db name and you have the correct password as well.

      It looks like you haven't created a database. If you host give you the ability to do this via a website control panel, you need to do so there.
      If they don't give you the ability to create your own, you need to get them to create a database for you and input the information they provide in the appropraite places in the config.php file.
