configuration question?

Hello Drupal-Boulder meetup,

Hope someone can help me with a (hopefully) simple configuration question. (I'm new to Drupal, BTW...)

I'm using Drupal via an ISP. I recently needed to upgrade my account (to use SSH), and to do so, had to backup, then restore, my Drupal database.
Trouble is, after the restore and service upgrade, the database name had to change.
Of course, the technical support at this particular ISP (, not recommended, just cheap) is not quite up to being able to really help me with my question.

I'm sure it's a simple formatting of this one line my settings.php file:

// (8-feb-2009: rcasey) changed this to update to new db name after backup/restore on suggestion of godaddy tech support
//$db_url = 'mysqli://ric[masked]:[address removed]/ric[masked]';
$db_url = 'mysqli://rickc77.db.3331421:[address removed]';

The old line that is commented out is what used to work, and I've modified my new line to not show my db password (obviously). However, Drupal still does not like this; anyone have any ideas?
