I followed one of the tuts on here and for some reason i just cant get it too work in the install.cgi it wont connect to my sql i tryed like a million times and made a couple of my sql and it still wont connect!

And when i vist my homepage keep getting error " Can't connect to Mysql server. at Modules/DataBase.pm line 29. "

Dont have a clue what to do from here!

If anyone could come help me that would be great.

so you claim that you use the following detais ??

Code: Select all

host = localhost
pass = password
username = username
database = username_database

or are you using something like this

Code: Select all

host = http://anywebsiteyoucanthinkof.com
username = default
pass = default
database = default

well , if you used the second quote , then change it to the first quote

The error it says is NEVER wrong
maybe not as mutch detais as in php
but that error can exist out of 3 things

username/pass/host is wrong

so please check your detais and be sure that host is LocalHost
pass is the password you used for your account
on cpanel the username = cpanel_username (username prefix , then database username )
