    Try entering 'localhost' as the DB_HOST entry.

    Yup, I did try that. It gave me the same error (should have mentioned that, duh!), so I tried the other things. Any other ideas???

    There is so little that can go wrong.
    Of note is the fact that the database name, and the database username and password are set by your service provider, and I find it strange that it should have 'wordpress' as part of it, unless you wanted it that way. Check those again, and you will be home. :)

    Okay... I feel like a moron... when I set up the wordpress database, I didn't see that it only would accept a database name with so many characters... after I changed the config info to "opheliac_wordpre", it still didn't work, but then I swapped in localhost for the DB host... and viola!
    *shakes head*
    Sorry to trouble you all with this... and thanks SO much for your help...!
    *mumbles* Duh... duh... duh...
