Database error message

Hi there,

I am new to PHP and databases and I need to upload a website onto a server. I am getting an error message which you can see on where the site is sitting. I have installed a database on the server and changed the file to what I think is correct. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks so much,

The error on the page says it is using the user name "username" to connect to the database. Somehow I dont think that is right. I would guess your user name is p3 which is what the user name is in /home/. Try changing it to the correct value.
