Am new to youjoomla, and after reading all tutorials and searching forum, i was trying to install demo sportline pack in a directory on the hosting server. I copied all files. Created databse. Thouroughly checked username and password for db. And while doing joomla web instalation, when I provide mysql db details it throws, error as follows:

An error has occurred.:

Could not connect to the database. Connector returned number: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQ

Can you please help? Am using joomla1.5

When you get this error then one of the following is wrong:

host name (localhost)
db username
db password
db name you created when setting up the db

Check your db settings on your host and try again

Im not good at this, but if it helps..
you are aware of that in demo installation, you get the whole joomla CMS as well?
So only install the demo...not first joomla 1.5, and then demo
