We get this error when installing... "Your server is running PHP version 5.3.29 but WordPress 5.2.2 requires at least 5.6.20."
Is there any way to host an up-to-date Wordpress site on this client's account on Sonic?
Code: Select all
Action php-cgi /cgi-bin/php56
AddHandler php-cgi .php
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 b.custsql.sonic.net. This could mean your host's database server is down.
Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
the MySQL password hash for your account needed to be updated to work with the newer PHP version. This Wordpress install must have been created quite a while ago since it was using MySQL's "old_password" format.
