    i got a wordpress instalation package just now, i want to install it

    and i use 000webhost.com as the server, after i uploaded all of the files through ftp site and modified the 'wp_config.php' (i don't have any idea about the database name and others, so i leave it without any change, i just changed the 'auth_key') i got stuck when installed it,

    on the screen appeared

    >>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 . 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?

    If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.<<

    i think it's about the database, what should i do with that? i really don't have any idea about 'database' coz i'm newbie...

    anyone can help me?
    thanks b4,

    It looks like 000webhosting.com has Cpanel. Do you know how to login to your Cpanel account?

    Usually, you just enter your normal web address in the browser followed by /cpanel and login with your username and password.

    If you can get to Cpanel, then see if the following video helps.
