// database variables - this is info you've received from you hosting service
// those are needed for the script to connect and use MySQL
$pixelpost_db_host = "YOUR DB HOST"; // database host, often "localhost"
$pixelpost_db_user = "YOUR DB USERNAME"; // database user
$pixelpost_db_pass = "YOUR DB PASWORD"; // database user password
$pixelpost_db_pixelpost = "YOUR DB NAME"; // database
$pixelpost_db_prefix = "pixelpost_test_"; // table prefix, leave as is unless you want to install multiple blogs on the same database
YOU CAN LEAVE THIS ALONE
// pixelpost version
$version = "MS41IEZpbmFsIC0gSnVseSAyMDA2";
DO NOT EDIT!
So, your database would be the name of the database you created the username and password for.

...When I type in www.stillentime.com/admin/install.php., www.stillentime.com, or anything close. I know I entered in my database correctly now that you cleared up the pixelpost DB for me. Thank you, by the way.
My database is right! My problem must lie within my FTP. I'm using FireFTP and simply uploading all my pixelpost files from my pc to the remote side. Shouldn't this do the trick? I've changed the settings on the thumbnail and image properties.
Many, many thanks,

What exactly is your problem?
I followed the links you suplied above and it automaticly redirected me to a f403.php (403 usually means acsess denied but I'm not sure this is the problem) which in turn redirects me to some page full of grabge content.

I would try using an actual FTP client instead of FireFTP. FireFTP seems to be okay for doing quick things, but for uploading site files I would use a real FTP client...

Any insight on SmartFTP client?

Smart (or Cute) is what I use, and I've never had a problem. One other thing to note is when you are opening/editing any Pixelpost related files, make sure you are using a quality HTML editor, and not word, or wordpad, or notepad. An HTML editor that someone here recommended to me is Edit Plus...I love it.
Im using Smart FTP and its quite stable and solid FTP client.
