Zencart unable to connect to database

If you were fiddling around with Zencart for the first time and experience some problem connecting to your Zencart database and the errors is because of a password changed you made, like I did in the Godaddy shared hosting account try the following steps:

1. Change the password in the includes/configure.php file
2. Change the password in the admin/include/configure.php file.

Do check whether other details like the server name, website URL etc. are also set correctly.

Even though you might have kept your folders in a folder which makes the domain name as:
http://www.example.com/folder_name

the following values still should be just your site name:
  define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.example.com');
  define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://www.example.com');

The following values should be as (including the trailing slash):
 define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/folder_name/');
  define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/folder_name/');

And make sure you don't overwrite any one of the configure.php file with the other. Although they both have the same filename they are different and server different purpose.
