path-issues in installing a wordpress - wrong pipe-path - like a testscript says - apollo - Jun-09-2019

hello dear Pythonists hello dear Pythonexperts


well - today i have no python-question. i have some issues in installing a wordpress - and i hope you can help me...


meanwhile i have tried to install wp on a rootserver that is administrated by my friend i have got issues while trying to establish a db connection.

then i tried to run a test-teh connection script which gives back the following results

Quote: Warning: mysqli_connect(): (HY000/2002): No such file or directory in
/sites/www.mysite.de/testconnection.php on line 2
Warning: mysqli_error() expects exactly 1 parameter,
0 given in /sites/www.mysite.de/testconnection.php on line 4
Could not connect:

well - what does this script-results say - do i have issues and errors in the path of the pipe!?

do i have to do corrections here

*/
define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );

/* That's all, stop editing! Happy publishing. */

/** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) {
define( 'ABSPATH', dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/' );
}

/** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php' );

update - update - i have gathered some more insights :
i have gathered some more infos and insights due to some more tests.


see the following data: - the outcome of a testscript:

Warning: mysqli_connect(): (HY000/2002): No such file or directory in /sites/www.mysite.de/tests.php on line 3
Warning: mysqli_error() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli, boolean given in /sites/www.mysite.de/tests.php on line 4 could not connect
see the script:


<?php
if(function_exists('mysqli_connect')){
if(!($link = mysqli_connect('localhost','user','passwd','my_db'))){
die('could not connect: ' . mysqli_error($link));
}
} else {
die("don't have mysqli");
}
echo 'connect successfully';
mysqli_close($link);
some ideas:

the paths seem to be a problem - in the config
by the way: the character-code is 1252 ANSI L

any idea and help - i look forward to hear from you

regards
