"Error establishing a database connection"
yeah I know it sounds like I haven't set my databse or config.php properly but...
I installed two copies elsewhere today without problems. I have installed on my local machine many times before without problems so this is something out of the ordinary (I think).
I just downloaded latest version of WP 2.0.4
never had this problem before.
I dropped all old database schemas and recreated. Checked passwords etc etc.
p.s. just installed a local copy of, movabletype and had no database problems, plenty of others but not database.
