Error Establishing a Database Connection in WordPress with Ubuntu 16.04.3 NGINX, MARIADB 10, PHP7/7.1 and Wordpress 4.8.2
When I create a new Ubuntu 16.04.3 droplet and I install NGINX, MARIADB and PHP (no matter which versions, all have the same problem) and WordPress I am getting the Error Establishing a Database Connection. Before this error I created +50 servers all the same and since a couple of days I am having this strange problem. Tried almost everything, so I am creating a support ticket for it. When I fill in the Database information (DBname, DBuser, DBpassword) I am getting directly Error Establishing a Database Connection. I am lost for the moment. Someone else with the same problem?
