Error establishing a database connection

  • Sounds familiar…?

    Trying to install WordPress on shared host (yahoo.com) using:

    phpMyAdmin 2.6.3-pl1
    MySQL 4.1.12

    Database wordpressDBII created, user wordpressUSERIII created and associated with wordpressDBII, all priviledges granted

    config:
    define(‘DB_NAME’, ‘wordpressDBII’);
    define(‘DB_USER’, ‘wordpressUSERIII’);
    define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘********’);
    define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    Host is definitately “localhost” (it says on mySQL)

    Have read this:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    Have dropped tables, re-created, tried creating different users, clearing browser cache (firefox), chanting, etc.

    Suggestions??
