phpUBB2 install

ok, i know it’s probably something simple, but i get the "
phpBB : Critical Error
Could not connect to the database " note when i try to run the install. I’ve tried the following in the “database server hostname” field:

none work… shouldn’t it be one of those? I’ve set up the database hostname, the database, and the user/pass stuff in the DH panel…I can bring it up in a web browser under, i can log in… but the install says no no no…

thanks in advance,

I got it. somehow the worked. don’t know why! but anyways…
