  • Problems installing on Win 2003

    We are in the process of moving to our new Win 2K3 server, we have installed PHP, mySQL and it all works. However when I run the install script i get this error on the page after defining the config info:

    Attempting to attach to database...

    Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES) in D:\Websites\Forum\admin\db_mysql.php on line 38

    Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in D:\Websites\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.

    Check your 'config.php' file to make sure all the database connection values are correct.

      As Brian said, it means something in your config.php file is wrong. It's likely the root user password. Try installing with no password and see if that works. If it does, you need to give the root user a password as leaving it open like that will cause you problems.
