Joomla! Template 002036 - Item Support

I used the quick start installation for AS 002036, but I am having trouble with the Database Configuration step. I am getting the "Could not connect to the database" message. I tried to fix this by creating the database and then tried to connect again, but I still get the same connection error.

These are the parameters that I used:
Database Type - Mysql
Host Name - localhost
Username - lduke
Password - *********
Table Prefix - ttinf_
Old Database Process - Backup
Hello LYNETTEDUKE,
We are sorry, we can't help you in this case, please check you have not made mistakes in the fields.

Regards, AS Team.
The problem was Hostname needed to be change from "local host" to what the hosting company specified after the database is created. So that meant that I needed to create the database first and then connect. This is how it is at least for go daddy.com
