I'm trying to install WP and got stuck at Step 5 -- creating the database tables.
wp-config.php fails with the message "Error establishing a database connection". I am however using the right username and password, and in fact, when I logon manually via phpMyAdmin everything goes fine.
I'm having the blog & database hosted by my web hosting provider. (Too bad they don't have a one-step install for WP though.) Can the fact that the webserver is IIS rather than Apache be an issue? They do support php though. I checked the version and it's php 4.4.0.
I looked throught the forum for clues but nothing seemed to work.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
