    Where does the Config.php belong? In the Includes File?

    Installing on a new host I am having a problem at step 2.....

    Step 2) Connect to the database
    Attempting to attach to database
    Error description: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/usr/local/mysql-5.0/data/mysql.sock' (2) /home/content/r/m/t/rmtsguy1/html/poughkeepsiepilotsassociation/forum/includes/class_core.php on line 311
    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php' file.

    Help
    Thanks

    config.php is a file located in the /includes folder.

      The most likely cause of this error is that the info in your config.php file is wrong or your db user does not have full permissions to this database. Please read this for all the known causes of this error:
