I'm trying to install Project Pier on a remote network, the hosting company is called ipowerweb.com.
I uploaded project pier to the site and setup a MySQL database through the hostings company control panel. Database name: projecpier, user name: test, password: xxx. I typed the xxx/public/install/ url into a browser and was able to get to step 3 of the installation; in step 2 all environment checkes passed, then when i enter in the database info i get the following error message
"Failed to connect to database with data you provided"
i know i typed in the database name, user id and password right but what about the Host Name in Project pier? how do i konw that is "localhost"? where do i check this? i can log into phpMyAdmin, can i check that there somewhere?
And what about the Table prefix? should that be pp_ no matter what?
is there anything else i should check?
All help greatly appreciated!
other info may be usefull...
