Database connection problems

  • OK, I have burned out my eyes and my heart over 2 days trying to get the email notification plugin working. I need some help. I’ve learned a lot and think I’m down to what I suspect is one small problem that a knowledgeable person can quickly address.

    It seems the problem is related to the database connection.
    Below is the error message that comes up when I try to view the blog. I created a database as instructed and a validated user. BUT the message below refers to a user I’ve never heard of. Presumably it’s a default setting in WP. But where does it come from and how to fix it?
