Unable to edit database with the provided user credentials

I am getting the exact same error. "Unable to edit your database with the provided user credentials. Please make sure the connection user has write access to this database."

I have created a database in dreamweaver CS5 and hit "Test." It connects fine. When I go to my php page and select my firs area to "Add Content to Power CMS" I get the above error.

I am hosting with Hostgator and have contacted them. They have tested the connection to the database and everything works fine. As it does when I test. I only get the error when I try to add to Power CMS.

All the threads on the forum end with someone opening a ticket. No one has posted an answer. Please advise on how to fix this issue. I bought this product 4 days ago and have been pulling my hair out to use the Power CMS. It definitely portrayed in the video tutorial as easy to use. Please help.
