Why i can't create database for installing WordPress?


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) mysql>

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).

Any answer ? help please …
