    I've got the following info from tech where my site is hosted...
    server is mysql4.uplinkearth.com
    databasename: M8493_mistressofthebard
    DSN Name: M8493_mistressofthebard
    Username: Kim_Estes
    Password: ******
    The SQL database is there, but when I updated the config file and refreshed it, it still tells me there's an error:
    Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
    Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?
    The site is http://mistressofthebard.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php
    Can someone help an SQL newbie get this figured out (and please use plain English! Thanks!)
