Thank you very much for your reply. I have followed these steps over and over again and I am still not able to get a working database connection. It's crazy becuase it was working just lastnight and I was able to access my tables from Dreamweaver. Now I am getting "unidentified error" could this have anything to do with me downloading Boss, security assist, and file manager from the extention librabry. That is the only thing I have done since last night.
