Help for a NOOB!

Recommended Posts

I just installed PHPNuke and tried to start a database and MySQL.  When i try to goto admin.php it states:

There seems to be a problem with the MySQL server, sorry for the inconvenience.

We should be back shortly

Ive named the DB and added me as a user and then associated to DB, but there is this string on my page:

Connection Strings
Perl $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:sfcmert_css:localhost","sfcmert_sfcmert","<PASSWORD HERE>");
PHP $dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "sfcmert_sfcmert", "<PASSWORD HERE>") or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db ("sfcmert_css");

Can someone assist me in getting this fixed, THANKS!

I'm not sure I understand... you're not getting MySQL errors directly?

Thanks for your tries...the strings were there just to inform me of perl and PHP commands.  I just had to install the tables in my DB.
