    Database Error

    Last night i tried to add another script to my server but when i made a new database i messed up. I used the user for my forum database and ever since then i cant get on to my site. I've gone back in to my MySQL Databases and removed the new database i just setup, then the user went back to my vbforum database, but it still says Database error...

    I've also had hundreds of database error emails, all the same as this:

    Database error in vBulletin :
    mysql_connect() [<a href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Access denied for user 'bigpuny2_hhduser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
    /home/bigpuny2/public_html/includes/class_core.php on line 311

    Access Denied means there's an issue with the permissions for that database user id.

    Double check the details are correct in config.php and that the database username has the relevant rights If you're sure these are correct then contact your host for further support.
