    Attempting to attach to database...

    Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES) in /home/rapreal/public_html/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 38

    Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/rapreal/public_html/forum/admin/db_mysql.php on line 47

    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please go back to the last step and ensure that you have entered all your login details correctly.

          Note: Once you get this sorted, you need to upgrade. Version 2.2.6 is not secure.

          This error means either:
          1. One or more of the following is wrong in your config.php file:

          $servername (except in rare case, this should almost always be left as 'localhost')
          If you are unsure of what the appropriate values are then you will need to ask your web host.

          2. Or that this db user is not assigned to that database or does not have permission to access MySQL or this database. Since each web host is different, if you do not know how to do this then contact your web host for help.
