Are you sure you’re entering correct credentials?

Database user should be your username ‘epiz_21869213’

Database name should be: epiz_21869213_name

Database password should be your cPanel password.

Database host should be sql###.something.

A good first step to solve issues like this is to enable debug mode in WordPress. To do that, find the line with WP_DEBUG in wp-config.php and change the false to true.

After refreshing the page, you should see a lot more information about why the connection failed. You can probably find the actual error message in this article: https://infinityfree.net/support/common-mysql-errors/

Don’t forget to disable WP_DEBUG again afterwards, it’s a security risk to have it on by default.

Hello! Thank you both for answering. I solved that the problem was that the host was wrong, the host that I had was the one I had when I made the backup.
