    I have uploaded all the required wordpress files (in relation to the 5 minuts install) to the root of my website - now it seems to have broken down.. I get this message: Error establishing a database connection.

    What is gone wrong?

    PS. Im new in wordpress-buisness.
    Thanks for your help.

    You likely have something wrong (DB_HOST, DB_NAME, DB_PASSWORD, DB_USER) in your wp-config.php file. If you are sure they are correct, speak to your hosting company.

    Thanks for your reply. I simple have typed in the ftp-username and password instead of the db username and password. Now it works :)
