Ok first here is my wp- config.php file
<?php /** WordPress’s config file **/
/** http://wordpress.org/ **/
// ** MySQL settings **
// The name of the database define(‘DB_USER’, ‘username’);
// Your MySQL username define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘password’);
// …and password define(‘DB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);
// 99% chance you won’t need to change this value
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.
$table_prefix = ‘wp_’;
// example: ‘wp_’ or ‘b2’ or ‘mylogin_’
// Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language must be installed to wp-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to wp-includes/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de’
// to enable German language support. define (‘WPLANG’, ”);
/* Stop editing */
$server = localhost;
$loginsql = user name;
$passsql = password;
$base = mydomain_com_-_wdb;
// Get everything else
once I point my browser to the sub domain I created
http://subdomain.mydomain.com/wp-admin/install.php I get
the fallowing error.
Error establishing a database connection! This probably means that the connection
information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect. Double check it and try again.
Are you sure you have the correct user/password?
Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
Are you sure that the database server is running?

MySql server with to perform other tasks.
