I had installed lamp stack as the tutorial said but i got this error message at phpmyadmin page :
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.

And when i try to install the wordpress and create the database the server refuse to create the data base with this message :

ERROR 1006 (HY000): Can’t create database ‘tiendyfashion’ (errno: 15278432)

Can you help me with this problem so i can install the wordpress?

Any answer ? help please ..

I’m not super familiar with SQL, but I did find this online. Try changing the database file’s owner to mysql:mysql and permissions to 0755, then create the database as root.

I personally prefer to use a flat-file CMS like Grav or Bolt, since they are easier to set up (no database).
