i know this has probably already been run into the ground...but i cannot get wordpress to install without getting 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.
Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?
If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
i have gone through all of the necessary motions in the 5-minute install. here is a copy of my wp.config.php with my settings.
define('DB_NAME', 'hassanna_wp86'); // The name of the database
define('DB_USER', 'hassanna_wp86'); // Your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', '********'); // ...and password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
can anyone point me in the right direction??
