Openshift wordpress app: can not connect to the mysql database

advertisements

I have just set up an openshift wordpress application environment (http://eigenbouw-vanhove.rhcloud.com/) but i can't get a connection to the mysql database. I added the phpmyadmin cartridge and i think i set the right information in my wp-config.

The error i'm getting when surfing to the site:

Error establishing a database connection

My wp-config:

$EBmysql = getenv('OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_URL');
$EBmysqlUser = getenv('OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_USERNAME');
$EBmysqlPass = getenv('OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PASSWORD');

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

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

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

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', $EBmysql);

/** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

/** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
define('DB_COLLATE', '');

The log files don't contain any errors it seems:

Any ideas?


The db url is not going to work, you need to use getenv('OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_HOST') instead, and use the getenv('OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PORT') also if you are using a scaled application.

if you ssh into your gear and run 'env | grep MYSQL' you will see that the URL variable is not what it should be for WordPress to connect to the database.
