As you can imagine, calling the same people over and over again just because their phone number has come up again was not the best way to make friends.
It seems to be that there’s a whole lot of people that are getting this error message when they are trying to install or move their WordPress site. Even though this problem is common and there’s a very simple solution, people seem to always have more trouble with it then it’s worth. Continue reading WordPress problems: Cannot Connect To Database
