Okay - I've installed WP on godaddy several times in the past, and I know I'm changing the config file properly, however godaddy has added a "manager" and it seems they've made other changes we're not aware of how to deal with yet.
I performed the install exactly as I have in the past, and wind up with this: 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 mysql43.secureserver.net. This could mean your host's database server is down.
I know that the database server/s aren't down, because all other sites on which I've installed WP PRIOR to this "change" they made, are working fine.
Any further ideas on what has happened? This is on Linux hosting...
