Unable to Install PowerCMS on remote site following successful localhost installation.

Adding Design Extenders PowerCMS to an existing small site I was very happy to find all OK when testing using localhost.

I proceeded to upload all files to the remote host and opening the page I expected to be presented with the "Getting Started" screen when I open the first page (index.php)

But I get two warnings:
Warning: mysql_fetch_assoc(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/fhlinux159/c/ on line 41

Warning: mysql_free_result(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/fhlinux159/c/ on line 67
No database selected

I set up one "Dynamic MYSQL Conection" file for both localhost and remote during the installation process which clearly work locally. However I noticed that an additional connection file has been created called "_PowerCMSconnection" which has duplicated credentials, not sure why, but I assumed all OK. I have also double checked the credentials used in the connection files which are all good.

When I tried to use ../install_cms or ...admin_cms the both took me to the Admin login screen and then subsequently to the same errors as above.

Not sure where to go from here??

Removed txt file from connections folder and got as far as step 4of5 when I get following error:
ERROR: Failed to save the settings in the database. Please verify your database connection.

Moving forward, still need help please.

Imported sql script .../install_cms/scripts/db.sql ad all completed, WOW I surprised myself!

However what did I do wrong with the above procedure?
No longer urgent.
