localhost.php error on installation

Hello - I am doing another installation with errors on the localhost.php >

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Unknown MySQL server host '550190_lazyl' (1) in /mnt/Target01/332078/550190/ on line 9

Fatal error: Unknown MySQL server host '550190_lazyl' (1) in /mnt/Target01/332078/550190/ on line 9

the localhost.php form code:

# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_localhost = "mysql5-10.wc1:3306";
$hostname_localhost = "550190_lazyl";
$username_localhost = "550190_lazylandl";
$password_localhost = "5L5a0z1y9l0a";
$localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

I can connect to the database and I have added the .sql file.

I have one more CMS to add tonight.
Thank you for your time,

The error indicates that some of those settings are incorrect.

Also, please make sure to not post confidential information on a public forum.

Try checking the information and make sure that they are the settings provided by your hosting provider.

Thank you. I was pretty sure there was an error but I have exhausted all the things I know what to do. Could you give me direction of where to look?

IN the past 2 weeks I have installed 3 of these on the same platform with 3 total different errors. For something that is supposed to be user friendly - I guess I am just stupid because I don't get it.

I can login into myPHPadmin site so the login and passwords work. The error references this line - $localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

which is the same as your code on WA.

Just tell me where to look for the error and I will do the ground work but to say there is an error goes without saying.

thank you,
