CMS2 cannot connect to database

CMS2 cannot connect to database

I am installing PowerCMS 2 and MySQL database on an Apache server for the first time and the nomenclature has me beat. Or, perhaps it is just this ISP. I named the database "cmsDB" and the user "admin". The Control Panel attached a prefix to both clientname_cmsDB and clientname_admin. I try to use those in the install and it says it cannot connect. See attachment for all files.
