    I've got a MySQL database set up and have checked its name, and the username and password, but still get an error message.

    "...Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?"

    Well, I tried localhost in the config file, then copied the hostname from the servers admin panel (mysql5.ixwebhosting.com), but I'm still getting the error. I'm not sure where to go from here.

    Ugh!! A typo. I can't even copy and paste. Sorry for the bandwidth use--problem solved.
