    Having issue with getting the sql database, name, user, and pw to take. I am third party connected to my server and do not have shell access. I only know have an email containing my database name, user name and pw. I have not yet verified that the hostname = localhost. I have edited the wp-config.sample file and renamed it and ftp'd it to my domain and am 99% sure that is all correct. Ideas?

    Thanks
    Mason

    If you've tried localhost and that doesn't work, you may have to ask your host for the database server.

    I had this problem with my first install. My host is modwest and the hostname setting had to be for db.modwest.com. You might want to try something along those lines.
