PHP pages not connected to MySQl database on hosted site

I have created a website with Dreamweaver and successfully have connected my *.php pages to the MySQL database. When I upload my site to my webhost (1and1), my php pages no longer can find the MySQL database because they are looking for it on the testing server.
I get the following error:

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'Connections/db1996.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /homepages/44/d289565916/htdocs/drygoods/PATTERNS.php on line 5

which you can see in person at patterns.php

What information should I be adding on line 5?

thanks
cindy
