[resolved] Trying to install on Network Solutions (4 posts)

    I'm creating a new site for a client who has WP. I haven't used WP myself so I'm a little lost. Network Solutions has a "5 minute install" for WP and I followed all instructions and everything looks good. The username/pw in the wp-config.php are correct. But when I try to go to http://www.radiantbylori.com/radiantblog/wp-admin/ as instructed, it gives me a 'Error establishing a database connection'.
    It says another possibility is 'or we can't contact the database server at mysqlv10. This could mean your host's database server is down.' - anyone know an easy way (i.e. not calling customer service) to check this?

    Or any other thoughts?

    Thanks

    Looks like you got it working. Any tips to share about how you fixed it?

    I ended up calling Network Solutions - got a guy with attitude who wasn't explaining what he was doing. I think he updated WP (though I just did that a few hours ago)?

    Though I cannot, for the life of me, remember the NS login credentials for the WP portion. Might have to uninstall/reinstall. lol Now that would be funny. ;)

    Thanks for the help!
