Error establishing a database connection (2 posts)

    I've seen a number of posts related to this same error message. Therefore, I have made sure to double check the username, password, host and dbname. I am able to connect with the same info via the MySQL Administration tool and connect without a problem. However, when I try to connect through the /wp-admin/install.php file, it gives me the "Error establishing a database connection" message

    Here are my specs...
    PHP 4.4.4
    Windows 2003
    IIS 6
    MySQL 5.0.24a

    I am completely at a loss as to where to go from here?

    Please research, adding IIS into your search terms, as well as "godaddy" if that's who you're hosting with, and if not, whoever you ARE hosting with.
