I am trying to host a Wordpress site on my old Android phone, but so far I have been unsuccessfull...
I tried with KSWEB and Ulti Server, extracted the Wordpress.zip in the sdcard, and when I try to connect to the server I am getting error with the database...
Error establishing a database connection
Does it also has to run some other SQL server on the phone for everything to work?
I really don't know what am I doing, and there aren't any good explanations on the internet, so please help me
Wordpress requires a database to run.
After installing KSWeb, you will need to create a database for Wordpress. To do this:
localhost:8000(to connect to phpMyAdmin).
wordpress, select create. Your wordpress database should now be created.
Now wordpress needs to be setup.
localhost:8080/wordpress. It will ask you to setup your database connection.
rootfor the username and clear out the password field (you can leave everything on the default settings).
It should now connect WP to your database.
Thought about using a Raspberry Pi? I've setup several Wordpress Sites on the Pi (with MySQL) and you can set it up with your network for local website hosting.
