Hi @matteo24.5 ,

Thank you for using Bitnami. Please note that we do not maintain that guide so we do not know if it’s updated or not. However, I suggest you check if you can access the external database using the mysql command line tool

mysql -u dbmasteruser -h DatabaseEndpoint -p

Once you confirm you can access it, please review you configured the credentials correctly in WordPress and contact the AWS team or the WordPress’ support team to debug the issue you are running into.

ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown server host ‘DatabaseEndpoint’ (-2)
this is what i get

DatabaseEndpoint is a placeholder, you need to set the correct IP/domain to connect to the database.
