    Hello all,

    I downloaded the plug in "WordPress Plugin: WP-Polls 2.21" at http://lesterchan.net/portfolio/programming.php, I unzipped the file and uploaded it to my site via dreamweaver. I received a notification saying the file wp-config.php has been changed do you wish to overwrite this file? My dumb ass clicked yes. as soon as i did i got an error on my blog at http://oneguysblog.com. now it wont even load. does anyone know how i can fix this?

    I checked the php file and everything looks correct there. any suggestions?

    figured it out.. i went into my hosting account and re checked my DB name and user name, they were different than what was noted on the wp-config file, I went into the wp-config.php file and changed to the correct DB information. interesting that installing the plug in did this.. hmm.
