    Hello, upgrading wordpress and I know get this error

    ////////////////

    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. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    ////////////////

    All spelling is correct and datbase is working fine ?

    any help much appreciated

    thanks

    How do you know the DB is working?
    Did you modify the config file or are you using the old/existing one (as it is recommended)?

    Using the old config file, and have tested the database with simple php code (I am not a PHP coder) using Mac OSX Tiger if that helps at all...
