I’ve followed a few tutorials to get a new user setup, get a new virtual host setup for the new domain I have pointing to my droplet, and download Wordpress into the new virtual host public_html directory created for it. Everything works fine up until I try to access the Wordpress install process at my new virtual host domain, I get the page and can enter the database information but I can’t get the darn thing to connect. Do I need to use something other than localhost to connect to the database if the database user is not set up as a root user?
