  1. If u guys got and error with your database connection you should try this one.

    Database Name: wp_demo
    Username: root
    Password: root
    Database Host: localhost8889
    Table Prefix: wp_

  2. This is really becoming frustrating. I tried every comment with solving instructions and still have “error establishing database connection”.

  6. Please check the comments below for a list of common issues mentioned by other viewers.

    When putting your details in please try locahost and the port number. For example “localhost:8889” or whatever your SQL port is set to.

    You can get this port from MAMP -> Preferences -> Ports
