  • [Forum] im sooo close but...

    ok so i created a host, made a database, plugged in all the information i needed that matched with my database to the config.php then uploaeded the uploaded folder using filezilla to my site and when i tried to install it worked. but when i get to step 3, it says in big read letters that i do not have permission to connect to the server. why is that? i though i set the permissions already.... and i've triple checked them and they are correct... ;3

      It looks like you or your hosting provider created the database and the database user; but they did not grant correct privileges to that user. Additionally, check for silly mistakes - is the database server name localhost or does it require some other hostname?

        Also, I noticed that you are installing vb 4.0.6. You might want to install the latest version which atm is 4.0.7.

          hmm it may be your first one because i used a free host ( ) and they didn't ask to set permissions i tried the other thing you said but it still didn't work so that's probably it (the 1st thing)

              It has been several days since 4.0.7 is out.
