Getting 'Error establishing a database connection' after trying to enable WP Multisite

I was following the steps of how to enable WP Multisite and after I finished step 6 I got this error:

Error establishing a database connection

This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host’s database server is down.

Are you sure you have the correct username and password?

Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?

Are you sure that the database server is running?

If you’re unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.

I went back and un-did the changes and am still getting the same message. Any suggestions?
