While trying to use joomlapack kickstart to move my file from localhost to live site I got to the DB restore point and seem to be stuck on this error:
Could not connect to database. please check your connection parameters
Anybody able to help me on this
If the database and script ("Joomla") are already located on the server, it should be OK to use a MySQL database server hostname of "localhost" -- this is valid use when pointing to the same "local" server that hosts both the database and the script.
If by "localhost" it was intended to refer to a local system and not yet on the server that hosts the live site, then when provisioning the new or custom script install please ensure to create a database and database user via cPanel (assuming they do not yet exist), using either of the following two features:
cPanel: Main >> Databases >> MySQL® Databases
cPanel: Main >> Databases >> MySQL® Database Wizard
For additional reference, here is our documentation for the above features in cPanel: cPanel Databases
