I can't connect to Mysql database I created for webtrees.
This the unhelpful error I get:

SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable network.

This is the page I was on with the my info filled out


*********************************************************
Server name
0.62.209.108:3306 *
Most sites are configured to use localhost. This means that your database runs on the same computer as your web server.
Port number**
3306
Most sites are configured to use the default value of 3306.
Database user account ***
webtree
This is case sensitive.
Database password
••••••••
This is case sensitive.


************************************************************************************************************

No where in the dialog above does it ask for the name of my database which I created. Does Webtrees create the database itself?

* Godaddy just uses numbers for this
** I've never needed a port number to install scripts on my site before. Not sure where I could find it
*** I'm not sure what it is asking for, Database user name or the name of the database. They are the same for my database anyway.

Thanks,
Paul

You have put the server name (0.62.209.108) and the port number (3306) in the same field.

The server name would be just "0.62.209.108". Although this address looks unusual. I've not come across an address beginning zero. Check this?

Well, actually The port number does go there according to godaddy. When I copied and pasted I came away with only part of the number, that was the problem. I got it installed correctly! The only problem was I had a problem with godaddy tech support(they don't have any apparently)and i switched Hosting providers! Now it will be a couple of days before I'm up and running again!

Thanks,
Paul
