  • *another* problem

    Install is now completed and when I went to log in to the admin cp I got a 404 error saying login/php did not exist so I reinstalled login.php and now I get this on the admin cp
    There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.

      I emailed my host and asked them and they said to delete everything and make sure got it uploaded correctly (aparantley there was a file in the wrong place) so we did and now we're stuck on step 2 of installation again. Here's my error
      Step 2) Connect to the database

      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 'werbeyond_com_-_forum'

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

      I went back in to my site control panel and made sure that the database name and password were the same as what was on the config.php but it's still not working.

        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 to create or access 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.

            Just like the error says:

            database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please confirm the values entered in the 'includes/config.php' file.

            Contact your hosting provider and ask them to confirm these settings. And ask them what host you should connect to and if you have permission to connect to that host, database, as that user.
