Cannot setup database connections...

Besides the username and password, what would the other settings be in step 2 (hostname, database)...I don't see what I have wrong.


I have a cms database and a gallery database. This is on a new server that I do not have control of. I have been emailing a lady for a week to try and get the host name and full database name (she sent me the photo and said she told me everything in the picture anyways). I am getting annoyed with having a whole site waiting to upload and being held back back this little speed bump. localhost doesn't work as the server name.
