    This error means either:

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


    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 to create a database. You may need to first manually create the database and assign the db user to it. Since each web host is different, if you do not know how to do this then contact your web host for help.
