    i have the program upload to my server now when i run it i get threw the first couple of steps then i get this error what am i doing wrong and what can i do to fix this

    The 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

    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.
