It's all working now, and I'm not sure what happened. I deleted the
LocalSettings.php and went through the config drill again and all was
well. Sorry for the alarm, and thanks for the help!
And, yes, I am hosted at Dreamhost and didn't know about the 1-click
upgrade. Oh well, next time....

I have installed mediawiki on my own server and ran into the same
problem. It only worked if I used the root account for mysql. Using a
user of the database would not work.
You may need to tell it
* the right hostname -- mysql.domainname.com
or whatever mysql
your db is on.
* the right mysql db username (and provide that db username's
* the right db name, whatever.sql
I'm just guessing. I don't use C-panel.
