The wp-config.php file contains
a roadmap to your MySQL
If wordpress threw up…
Inside wp-config.php is WordPress’
roadmap for connecting to MySQL
-When installing WordPress yourself manually,
you have to enter these values after creating a MySQL database.
-When using a one-click install through a host,
they create the database and fill in these values for you.
what’s in the database?
wp_commentmeta Meta information per comment
wp_links Information related to the Links feature
wp_options Options set under Administration>Settings
wp_postmeta Meta information per post
wp_posts Posts, Pages, Navigation Menu Items
wp_terms Categories and Tags
wp_term_relationships Association of posts with categories, link categories
wp_term_taxonomy Description of taxonomy (category, link, tag)
wp_usermeta Meta information per user
wp_users List of users
With WordPress connected to your MySQL database,
we’ll use PHP to retrieve that information
through directions specific to the page viewed on your site.
These PHP directions for each page template,
along with the CSS to style those directions,
make up your WordPress theme.
putting it all together…
