    This is what I get whenever I try to reach my site.

    "Error establishing a database connection"

    Is the fact that I installed a FTP today have anything to do with that? Is it on WordPress' side, or Lunarpages(my host)

    Here is the URL-www.thetribehasspoken.net

    Check out the wordpress config file and make sure that you have the right values there for the site and database. This should fix the problem. I use lunarpages as well, and installed wordpress from Fantastico in the cPanel, which was alot easier than downloading and ftping everything.

    I did that too, but I wanted to change my theme and had to get an FTP I think.

    This may sound stupid, but where is the wordpress config file?

    main directory of your blog - named wp-config.php

    When you added ftp capability to your hosting, I wonder if you reset your password that was being used for db access? (would be a question for your host)

    I would say that it is your wp-config.php (sorry I didn't give you the filename when I responded)

    cPanel also gives you access to phpyadmin, where you can go in and take a look at the db you have set up. (in case HandySolo's comment is correct)
