Hi! You connection to MySQL is not correct. Please, double check host, port , user name and password

Thanks Eugene. Seotoaster installation at step 2 will ask for host. By default, it is stated as localhost. At Godaddy hosting, it is refer to database hostname after you've created your database. So after entering the hostname and necessary info, I get pass step 2. And you know what. It is incredible. Seotoaster is a really incredible Open Source CMS and ecommerce program. Cheers. Let's have a toast.
