On this install (on the economy hosting package) the installation says it cannot connect to the MySQL db on the second screen. I have tried installing a Joomla straight from the Applications, but when I do that it writes over all the files I unpack in the quickstart. I've also tried installing a MySQL db using the MySQL database wizard, but it always says a database by that name -- whatever I put there -- already exists.
Any ideas? I sat on a chat for about an hour yesterday, but the tech team didn't seem to get the issue. I could install the template, mods, components, plugins, etc... separately, but that won't give me an install with dummy (demo) content in place. I'll go that route if I have to, but it's much easier to unpack with sample data and just replace content / code in mods.
Any ideas? If you need to connect to me directly I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
