Problem connecting to database

I have just started using Data Bridge with Dreamweaver CS6. My web site is hosted by GoDaddy. I have a MySQL Database set up there. I am trying to create Register / Login / Logout pages.

I opened Dreamweaver and opened a new PHP page and saved it. (WebAssist says it has to be open)

I clicked... WebAssist... SecurityAssist... Create Security Pages

For Preset, I selected "Simple..."

Next for Connection I clicked "Define"...

It doesn't show any connections, so I clicked New... and selected MySQL Connection...

Assuming (dangerous) that Connection name was just for my use, I entered "Mydatabase"

For MySQL server I entered the url for my website...

Username and Password are those for the database user that I created in GoDaddy

Database is the name I created in GoDaddy... "Members"

When I click Test, I get a "An unidentified error has occurred."

In Dreamweaver's help I noticed that it said that I had to have a MySQL Database and a MySQL server started???

What am I doing wrong?
