    Might want to verify with your hosting provider to see if you need to change a host or something. Also, it appears that your password is not entered into config.php as it says the connection is not using a password.

        The most likely cause of this error is that the info in your config.php file is wrong or your db user does not have full permissions to this database. Please read this for all the known causes of this error:
