I have successfully set up several WP installs using WP/Godaddy but tonight I received the above referenced error when trying to run the install script.
I downloaded a fresh WP in zip form, setup a MySQL database through the Godaddy database setup, viewed the connection strings, renamed the wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php, inserted the correct connection strings, uploaded in the root of my domain, and ran the install url. I was presented with the Error establishing a database connection message.
After checking and re-checking my connection strings, and deleting and re-uploading WP to the root, I am still confronted with the same message. I called Godaddy and they verified that the connection string I'm using are correct.
Is it possible that something had gotten changed in the WP files before I downloaded that may be broken?
Any help to go further is very appreciated:)
