well if you get that freaking error, you should try something else…

It’d be nice to give us the error message.. Most of us here in the forums are good – really good – but we still cannot see something that is not here. :)

It can either be: wrong connection data – try to look them up - wrong port? - wrong host? - wrong user / database / password?

what script? etc..

Edit: I don’t think you’re query syntax is correct.. I have to go now though. Maybe someone can check it out for you.

I’m not sure if the $hostname value (as in the image) is right.

And did you change $password , $usertable , $yourfield before saving the config file?

That’s just a demo syntax provided by GoDaddy for reference and the same cannot be used.
