Connect WordPress to Your Database
Now that the WordPress files are uploaded to your hosting account and have created a database for WordPress to store your blog data in, you need to tell WordPress how to connect to your database. This is done by editing the WordPress settings file:
- Back in the control panel, on the Domain Menu page, click the File Manager icon.
- On the File Manager page, click on the “wwwroot” directory.
- On the File Manager page for the “wwwroot” directory, click on the “wp-config-sample.php” file.
- On the File Manager page for the “wp-config-sample.php” file, change the file’s name to “wp-config.php” in the Save File As box. Then, in the File Content box, change the settings for database name, username, password, and server name to the values you used when you created the database. When you are finished, click the Save button.
- Next: Install WordPress
