I'm copying a website to a different domain name on the same server – which is something I usually don't do.
I copied the public_html using FileZilla and created a new database (and uploaded the old database in this new database) using the same username and password as the original database. I changed the new database name in the wp-config.php file but now I keep on getting the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'DB_USER' (T_STRING) in /home/username/website/public_html/wp-config.php on line 22
My wp-config file is the following:
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for WordPress */ define('DB_NAME', 'database’); /** MySQL database username */ define('DB_USER', 'username’); /** MySQL database password */ define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password'); /** MySQL hostname */ define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); /** 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', '');
I filled in the database name correctly. I didn't change the password and username as they are the same as in the previous database.
Who knows what's wrong?
