Ok, so I wrote my host, and asked them to set me up a database for my account, and they sent back the information on it. So I start plugging this junk in, and then upload it to the server in the correct folder and all that. Then, I go to the config page, and I get this error:
Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
* Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
* Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
* Are you sure that the database server is running?
Now, I've double and tripple checked this information in the database, and it's correct (I've even went to the measures of copying and pasting the information into the fields, just as it was given to me) and nothing. I've been fooling with this now for the better part of two hours, and I'm on the verge of giving up (Ah, the bane of the easily frustrated)
