    Ok, so I am trying to install WordPress on a server made by Westhost. I have created databases and users, tied the user to the appropriate database, threw in the php files for wordpress, and then edited the config file with the correct information. Yet, it still has problems connecting. What information do you guys need from me to help you help me? I'm lost.
    I feel like the database might not be connected to the URL. The main website that this is under is controlled by FrontPage, and his hosting is provided by Westhost.

    The database doesn't need to be connected to a URL. Typically, if your connecting to a database on the same account you'll use localhost.

    Also, make sure your user has all the privileges so access the database. Then also make sure your username and password are correct.
