Portable PHPMyAdmin – #2005 – UNKNOWN MYSQL SERVER HOST ‘WP_HOST’

Helo Friends,

I am working with WordPress and sometimes it may happen that client will not provide MySql access and we need a database to setup in our local system to work. I was in same situation and to move with that, I have installed Portable PHPMyAdmin Plugin in WordPress site. Once I installed and activate the plugin, I saw Portable PMA link in navigation. I clicked on it and it ask me for Username and Password of MySql.

I got Username and Password from wp-config.php file and when I enter it, it shows me wired message.

#2005 – UNKNOWN MYSQL SERVER HOST ‘WP_HOST’

To resolve this, you just need to change the host name of mysql. You can change it from config file of portable phpmyadmin plugin. To change the host name, go to..
/wp-content/plugins/portable-phpmyadmin/wp-pma-mod/config.inc.php

Now go to line 51 and change the value to “localhost”.

I am sure this will solved your problem and you can now login to phpmyadmin.

I would be happy to help you if you face any problem. Comment below if you have any questions or you are getting any other issues.
