you went to the downloads page and downloaded the full install archive.

don't do that.

go to the downloads page and download the one UNDER that...  the one labelled "Large Upgrade" (which is what the Wiki says to do)

I did the same as you told downloaded the large upgrade and extracted in smf root directory but still a message appears cannot connect to the database server

if that is the case, then either the settings in your Settings.php file are incorrect or your host has limited your user access to the database for some reason...

Also, if you completed the install and input the same database info, there's a chance that you deleted your database contents.

Restore from a backup and then try again.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

If you uploaded the full install package, it overwrote Settings.php with a scratch file, your db credentials are gone.  You can edit them directly in Settings.php.

"This is really a generic concept about human thinking - when faced with large tasks we're naturally inclined to try to break them down into a bunch of smaller tasks that together make up the whole."
