    I keep receiving the following error message. I've quadruple checked the info I've edited in the wp-config.php file. Don't have a clue what the issue is. Anyone?


    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.

    * 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?

    Check with your host to ensure that you are using the correct database name and database user name. Some hosts prepend text on their database names.

    Ensure that your database user is a member of the database and has full privileges.

    Thanks, I'll ask the host and let you know what they say. I beleive the issue is with the user privileges.
