Error establishing a database connection!
Seen this title a lot in the forum, but the answers to other people’s problems haven’t helped me.
I’m trying to install WordPress on my local PC. I like what I’ve seen and read about WP, so I wanted to test it thoroughly and attempt adapting it to my site locally before uploading it.

I used MySQLAdministrator 1.0 to snoop around the database. Nowhere did I find what
wp-config.phpcalls a database name. So I assumed what was wanted is what MySQLAdministrator calls a schema. I setup a schema called
wordpress. Then I setup a user called
admin_de, and granted all database privileges on wordpress to admin_de. Then I filled in
Needless to say, this didn’t work, which is why I’m writing this post. I also tried root and the original MySql password, but this didn’t work either. When installing MySql I had chosen Latin-1 encoding and ISAM tables. Was this wrong? Should it be UTF-8?
I would be very grateful for any help
