Hi, I am stuck at the Installation part of Magento under Configuration. It keeps coming up with a Database Connection Error. Could someone please help me because I am not too sure what I am doing. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am currently using DreamHost for the first time so I’m not sure if that could be the problem.

Thanks
Akuila

Hi there,

You need to make sure you have all your database name, database username, database password, and your host and enter them in the right boxes. If that’s still not working then you probably have the wrong details.

Hope that helps, if not let me know..

DreamHost im sure will be faster in questions about your database.

Thank you Steve for replying to my query. Really appreciate it. Will do that and see what happens. I have this feeling that its something to do with Creating MySQL on DreamHost.
