    Well,it says what it means: You don't have the permission to access the database you want to connect to. Either you use not the correct username and password, or you're host doesn't allow you to connect to that database. Make sure that you filled in the correct info for the db in config.php. About the permission, talk to your host. May you also need to change the adress for the db tolocalhost or to your server adress.
