i declare the variable as

$hostName = "localhost";

$username = "root";

$password = "123";

$databaseName = "testing";

at my db.inc file

$connection = mysql_connect($hostName, $username, $password);
 mysql_select_db($databaseName, $connection);

double check your using the correct password, i am assuming ur doing it on your local machine so that souldnt be much of a problem, also can u login to the database with those user/pass if u can then make sure the inc file is correctly included
