    Okay. You know how you write the database name and all of that in wp-config.php? Well, I think I'm putting the wrong thing in the wrong places... Here's what I'm putting...
    define('DB_NAME', 'http://secondbest.crimson-regret.net'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'secondbest@crimson-regret.net'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '--------'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'; // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    AhhH! How do you know what's your MySQL name? And, and, the DBname is what your host gave you, right??

    The db name should be what your host gave you. The one you have there will not work...that is a url. I also suspect that the user is wrong. It is possible that the names could be like this:
    yourdomain_username
    yourdomain_dbname
    Many hosts set up mysql databases like the above. I would contact them about this issue.
