This concerns abel-formation.com
The error message on the website is “error connecting to the database” and in Wordpress I get “The MySQL Database could not be selected”.
This is a Wordpress site being transferred from OVH using a backup and FileZilla. The site has been uploaded into the htdocs file. The database was created and uploaded using cpanel in Infinity. The wp-config.php has been updated with the relevant information for the Infinity database and has been double checked by two people. It points to the correct database, with the correct username and password. Do I have to modify anything else? Thanks for your feedback.
Hello KangJL, thanks for your reply. When I modify the nameserver with OVH, I no longer receive my e-mails. I have an OVH E-mail Pro account linked to my domain name managed by OVH. I can send email, but I no longer receive them when I enter the Infinity nameservers. Any solutions? Thanks.
Hello, sorry to come back to this. I have to set up the site now. I have a custom domain abel-formation.com. Each time I install Wordpress, I get the same error: can’t connect to the database.
Wordpress creates a database and names it. It creates it’s own DB user, DB password and DB host in wp_config. After, it can’t connect to the MySQL database. So, I change the DB user, DB password and DB host to that provided in my Infinity account in the wp_config.php. Doing so has given me access once to Wordpress editor and the site online. Once. I thought I’d solved the problem. No. Signed out and signed back in and same problem. Unable to connect to the database. I’ve deleted the site and database several times and reinstalled to no avail. In Wordpress management, the database details do not change even when I’ve modified the wp_config file in php. Any solutions out there?
If you can’t connect to the db,try go to Softaculous > Installations and click on the orange pencil icon at the right of Wordpress to modify the installation.At there you can change the db credentials.
You can also try to seek for whether there’re options in the wp-admin that says anything about the dbs.It might altered your wp-config.php after logging in.(By manually editing the config file first,of course.)
Hello Frank419, Thanks for your suggestions. I still have the same problem. Here is what I did and did not do: Installations : I’ve changed the db credentials: db user, password & host.
Still the same problem after. wp-admin : I opened the file in File Manager. I couldn’t see a php file listed as database or db. Should I be looking in a specifically named file? wp-config : that is still good according to File Manager and hasn’t been modified. It still has the credentials provided by Infinity Free and not those created by Wordpress.
Hello Frank419, I’ve just been let in after creating a second administrator. I’m not using his access. I’m using my first administrator. Just a coincidence? Or maybe the server needed time to accept the modified DB credentials in insatllation? I’ve been here before though, so my access may not be permanent. Will see.
I believe that it is possible that infinityfree’s sql servers are encountering with problems.
I saw no posts on your site(no important data),maybe you can try reinstalling or fixing installation?A corrupted installation might cause db issues.See also

Sonce I’ve been able to edit the site in Wordpress, with enormous difficulty as Wordpress constantly tells me it can’t save the modifications. Now I have no access to the site or Wordpress. Same error "can’t connect to the database. Are the limits?
Yeah it seems to be caused by your website opening unusual amount of database connections, which can be caused by either so many traffics (though it should not trigger it unless in rare circumcations) or you have installed plugins which open many database connections in background.
