Can't connect to database

Can't connect to database

I tried using Power CMS for the first time and when I hit the Test button in the Define section of Connection, I get an undefined error. I've checked, double, and triple checked my information. I know it's correct because I've actually copied and pasted it from Power CMS to Navicat. If I just close the Connection Define wizard, and hit finish, I see the initial files get uploaded. I click Finish and get an error message stating Errors were encountered when connecting to your database. Upon clicking Okay I get another error message saying An unidentified error has occurred. That is followed by a third message stating Click the 'Define...' button and correct the connection issues before continuing.

I've gone through this process three times. I deleted the Connections folder from the site root and tried restarting to no avail.

I'm running Mac OSX Lion and the remote database is using MySQL5.
