    I'm going to guess that the host you need to use is not "localhost".
    If you can, look at other scripts using MySQL to see what host they use.

    Localhost is correct. But, does the user 'admin' have a password pd '12345' and permission on that Db. Thats a user name and password set for the db not the site. If your local you can use 'root' and leave the password blank.

    Error Establishing a Database Connection is the most frustrating problem. It is more frustrating when It occurs automatically without doing anything wrong.
    I also have experienced the same error many times BUT I got the solution also.
    According to my experience, this error generally occurs when your Database login credentials and WP Admin login credentials become same.
    You should must check out below article to get complete solution for it.
