    I am setting up a wordpress site for a friend, using their domain, and their hosting through namecheap.com

    We have set up a point to our server on 1and1.com. The database is on our 1nad1 server as well.

    After running the install, I am getting an database connection error

    The MySQL database is version 4.0

    It will not work in that way. Install WP on the domain where you want it to be, not on another server.

    Just realized that the domain name alone is going though namecheap.com. It will be hosted and installed on my 1and1.com account. Does this make a difference?
