I'm trying to install a clean 1.5 on a new hosting spot, and am having trouble with the database. I've put all the details supplied by my host into the config file, but I get the "Error establishing a database connection" error.
I've written a short php script to test things and using the same details (host, db name, user and pass) it lists entries in a test table just fine!
WP's error is pretty generic. Is there any way to test exactly what is going wrong? Or perhaps a way to manually create the tables? A sql script to do that perhaps?
