I have installed WP many times with no problems using the 5 min method.
for some reason this time my install does not recognise (says the info could be wrong) the database I have made.
I make a new database just be sure it was created correctly and then check to be sure it is running( it is)
so I create the wp-config.php locally and upload it and get this message
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. 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?
