I created a database and uploaded WP2.0 to my server. When I try to install I get this error:
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 DB_HOST. This could mean your host’s database server is down.
* 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?
If you’re unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.
Now I’ve searched these forums and have seen this problem mentioned elsewhere within them, but have yet to see a satisfactory explanation or fix for the problem. I have checked and re-checked to make sure that the database name, user name, and password are all correct. I know that the database server is working. So, does anybody have an idea of how to fix this?
