Help installing SlimStat?

apps

#1

I want to add SlimStat -->http://wettone.com/code/slimstat to track statistics about my website. Downloaded, unzipped, uploaded all the necessary files and I began following instructions. I have a problem with step 1: Connect to database.

Here is what slimstat needs to know:
var $server = “localhost”; // Leave as localhost unless you know
otherwise
var $username = “username”; // The username used to access your
database
var $password = “password”; // The password used to access your
database
var $database = “database”; // The database containing the stats table

This is what I have…
var $server = “stats.russelheimlich.com”;
var $username = “username”;
var $password = “password”;
var $database = “stats”;

It never lets me get past step 1 of the install. What else can I do?
