Instillation problems on PHPwebhosting (2 posts)

    I am trying to install wordpress, but I get "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 localhost."

    I don't know how to set up a user on my database, and phpmyadmin is really confusing for me. When I try to set up a database called WordPress on the control panel, it says it already exists. I also don't really know the syntax for entering in your mySQL/database information. I would really appreciate if someone could help. my e-mail is Sean@wh34t.com

    Do you use a username/password to access phpMyAdmin? If so, try those in your wp-config.php.
