  3. 3. <ul><li>Problem: Can’t create a .htaccess file. </li></ul><ul><li>Many people especially Microsoft Windows users are unsure how to create a .htacess filename for their website. </li></ul><ul><li>The easiest solution is to create a file called htaccess.txt, then upload to your website. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the file is on your website you can then rename it .htaccess. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Problem: Can’t connect to the database server. </li></ul><ul><li>This problem can occur either when setting up your content management system, else during server performance issues. </li></ul><ul><li>If you are setting up your website content management system for the first time, perhaps you are experiencing this problem during an installation script? </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>It could be that you are typing in your database name using capital letters? </li></ul><ul><li>Try typing your database name in all lowercase. </li></ul><ul><li>Plus make sure you have the server connection details correctly, for example some servers require unusual port numbers, so you might have to add a port number after the database server. i.e. databaseserver:7100 (7100 being an example port number). </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>If you are experiencing this problem with an established website, then chances are the database server is not coping with the strain of heavy usage. </li></ul><ul><li>If it is your own dedicated server you might want to setup or tweak a website cache system to help reduce the demand on the server. </li></ul><ul><li>A cache will create flat files based upon previous visitor browsing, reducing the database server demand. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>So once a page has been cached, the next visitor will be presented with a cached page, resulting in less connections to the database server, which during peak traffic could help. </li></ul><ul><li>Else you might have to consider migrating to another database server if you are using a shared solution, but best to contact the technical support team for your website, before you make any decisions. </li></ul>
