    I set up my site, then installed phpBB and got my forum set up. However, now when I try to access the admin page for WordPress, I am given the following 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 glasswalkersnet.ipagemysql.com. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    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.

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, cgiadmin@yourhostingaccount.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log."

    Would this have anything to do with needing to set the database server hostname in phpBB instead of leaving it blank?

    It's a database connection problem.
    Try starting from the beginning.
    (clear your database tables, clear your WP files )
    1.Create new Database
    2.Run a fresh WP install
    Don't forget to write down your Database info.
