Problems with the rights Please help!

Postby Deadstar » 15. November 2009 21:54


I use XAMPP to test my Wordpress website on my localhost. In this I can safely experiment with the CSS and HTML.

The only problem is that I can't upload images in Wordpress. Actually I can't upload anything.

The XAMPP folder is set to 'Read Only'. When I change this to "read and write' I loose my database connection. It Says:
Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

Now I know the config dile is right, because when I tested it in Read Only mode, it wored fine.

Can someone tell me how to fix this?

Thank you
