Can't install xoops - connect to mysql problem

I am really frustrated trying to figure this out and I am hoping someone might be able to help.

Mysql has a default database which was established when my site host gave me sql permission. Is this the database that I want to name for installation? Because no matter what I have tried I cannot connect to that database. I have gone into phpmyadmin and confirmed the name of the database. I have used my sign on and password and it didnt work and so my site host gave me his admin sign on and password and it still says "could not connect to database server" ???

I am wondering if I am using the correct database hostname. I have tried the site URL, i have tried the ftp to the provider, i have tried the IP number of the site and I have tried using the default local host.

If anyone knows what else I could try, please reply. In the meantime I will continue trying things. Thank you
