    the subject is the error message.........

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at database.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums

    this is the complete page info

  4. Are you sure that the MySQL server is running fine? Have you altered wp-config.php?

    I've found that some web hosting accounts require that you use the domain name in the database name field instead of "localhost".
