You must create your database via through your cpanel of your host account.

 

There are typically 4 things you need to edit within the wp-config.php file that has to match the database.

 

You enter your database name, database username, database password and possibly the database host setting. You should be able to get all these info from the database you created earlier.

 

The area of the wp-config.php file should look like this:

 

// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', 'username_here');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

 

The instructions above is based on the fact that you have Wordpress files uploaded to your host (hostgator), created a database and applied the database credentials to your wp-config.php file.

 

If you are still having problems, send us a Private Message and provide the code from your wp-config.php file and a screen capture of your hostgator database credentials.

I also use Hostgater. Go to there tutorials, they are excellent. If that does not get you the help that you need call there tec support. They are also excellent and will walk you through the process to make sure that you set up you database correctly.
