I am new to this, maybe you could give me a hint:
hoster: strato, germany. (first tried default settings, then switched to php 5.1.x)
What i did:
1. set up a mysql-db (via stratos "database-admin")
2. filled in wp-config.php:
database-name (given by strato)
username (given by strato)
3. upload wordpress on server (root)
4. going to http://www.../wp-admin/install.php
"Error establishing a database connection
This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php..."
Any idea? Whats wrong? Thank you very much...
