Here's a copy of the error message followd by by config script. Again, this is the same mysql database info I used for MT (moveabletype) application which just 'popped' into action.
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 duke.
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?
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define('DB_NAME', 'you55'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'you55'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD, '****'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'duke'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.
$table_prefix = 'wp_'; // example: 'wp_' or 'b2' or 'mylogin_'
// Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language must be installed to wp-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
// to enable German language support.
define ('WPLANG', '');
