  • Oh Joy I think I[ve got one freaky error

    I have switched servers and so forth and decided to start out fresh and I'm no longer using my vbulletin version 2.2.5. I'm now using 2.2.6. Now I am 100% positive I have done absolutely everything right and when I ran install this is the error i got trying to complete the 3rd step.


    Attempting to attach to database...

    Connect failed: unexpected error from the database.

    Error number: 1044

    Error description: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' to database 'thexeffe_vbulletin'

    Please ensure that the database and server is correctly configured and try again.


    how exactly can I fix this? I'm positive I entered everything correctly which is

    Database server type: mysql

    Database server hostname / IP address: localhost

    Database username: thexeffe_forums

    Database password: ****

    Database name: thexeffe_vbulletin

    Technical email: [email protected]

    This error means that one or more of the following is wrong in config.php:

    $dbusername
    $dbpassword
    $dbname

    ...or that the db user does not have permission to access MySQL or that database. If you are sure that everything is correct, then you'll need to contact your host since only they can tell you what the right variables and permissions are.

      Lol, smachol you always answer my support requests. I emailed them and everything should be working fine, I uninstalled the database and made a new one and still get the same error, can anyone help out here?

        Honestly I can't think of any reason to get this error except for the ones I've already stated.
