    I am having trouble setting up this file. Here is my SQL database information.

    Database Name: greyscaleblog
    Host Name: mysql53.secureserver.net
    DSN Name: mysql_greyscaleblog.dsn
    Database username: greyscaleblog
    Password: ???

    can anyone help me?

    From the 5 mintue install:

    Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.

    You likely had to create/assign a password to the database when created--it's that password.

    I have created the SQL database - I am just not sure which parts to put into the wp-config.

    What password did you use when you created the database? That's the password to put in wp-config.

    yes it is...

    here is what I currently have in the wp-config.

    define('DB_NAME', 'mysql_greyscaleblog.dsn'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'greyscaleblog'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '???'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'mysql53.secureserver.net'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    (I am putting it as ??? because I don't want to reveal it)
