I moved my website from Yahoo hosting to Bluehost and have lost Photocart access. Yahoo was not allowing me to update to the latest t version of photo cart (I was stuck on 5.x), Bluehost did not support that far back when I transferred. So I have updated the files in Photocart per instructions on the new host, but when I go to finalize the installation I cannot get to any photo cart page. I get this:
Unable to connect to the databasephp_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known

Does anyone know how to walk me through this to get my galleries back up and running? I have clients that are looking to order from them for Christmas and I would like to get this working again soon. Thank you!

It sounds like in the setup.php file in your photocart folder you need to change the database hostname $setup['pc_db_location'] to localhost

$setup['pc_db_location'] = "localhost";

So is this how it should look now? (I have edited out the user name/password info) I updated this and it still did not work. I am very much a novice at this, is there another setup php file somewhere?

I am not sure why it isn't showing up here. Do I need to remove the code tags and stuff?
Refer to the SETUP_INFORMATION.html file included in the zip file on editing these settings

/* $setup['photo_cart_folder'] is the name of the folder for your Photo Cart on the server */

$setup['photo_cart_folder'] = "photocart";

$setup['pc_db_location'] = “localhost”,
$setup['pc_db'] = "photocart"; // The name of the database

You need to replace those quotes around localhost. They are none standard quotes that would come from Word or something like that which will cause errors.

Like this:

$setup['pc_db_location'] = "localhost",
