    Just downloaded the files from WordPress then uploaded all files to a new sub domain so I can learn how to use this. Got the error message Error establishing a database connection. Not sure where to go from here. Is there a file I need to edit?

    Check your database details with your hosts.

    When you say "database details", what specifically should I be looking for?

    Create a database on your host?( keep track of database info )
    Then run the WP install.

    You need to verify the database name, user, password and host.
