    i accidentally deleted the database i was using for my wordpress account and i made a new one for it, i tried entering the user and all that info in the wp_config.php and it diddnt work, is there somewhere i can go on wordpress to change the database username and other info?

    If you deleted your database you will be losing whatever content you had in your site before. Don't you have a backup? Perhaps your host can help you with this problem. After retrieving your old database, you can incorporate it into your new one and change your wp_config.php to show the database details you are using.
