Cannot connect to MySQL Database

Recommended Posts

I lost windows XP over the long weekend :( so i reinstalled her :)

 

Now I redownloaded and reinstalled

 

IIS 5.1

PHP 4.2.3

mySQL 4.0

 

I can access my .php pages through the browser but cannot connect to the database at all!!!

 

The username and password have been set properly.

 

I can\'t think of anything else that could be wrong :\'(

 

Please help

 

 

Thanks
