  1. I have follow the direction of how to create a mysql database
    username = new name
    password ftp pasword
    hostname = mysite name instead of localhost

    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 http://#####.##/. 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?

    Do you have URL we can look at to see the true error message.

    We will not know what is your database user name and password will be only you will know that since you created the MySQL database.

    because I have already update wp_config.php.
