        This is your problem:

        Unknown MySQL server host ''

        You need to contact GoDaddy about this and get the correct server name.

          I was helping him out on this... 99% of the time it works fine, he has the right info. I think it's godaddy personally.

            I hosted a small open source shopping cart on a GoDaddy server once, it's definitely a lot more difficult than it should be.

              I had database issues all day today with godaddy and I didn't do an update but I did change some style colors. it was annoying the crap outta me. I thought I had crashed my page.

                I had 2 files in my main root , a config.php and a well Godaddy was telling me that the new config was that of the new update showing 4.1.1 but the config.php was showing all my right info just not that of 4.1.1 it still showed 4.0.3 ... anyway i dont know much of what im talking about but its what i had that im telling you , and what the idiots at godaddy were telling me ...... so basically with BIRDOFPREY's help we managed to input my info from the original config.php into the new ....
                i havent had any errors as of yet so i think that might have fixed it but yesterday i had 129 database error emails , that was insane ..thank you birdofprey and all else whom responded to my thread . thanks
