    Installation error.

    I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place or not, but I'd like to get help any way..

    This is my error:
    Step 2) Connect to the database
    Attempting to attach to database
    Error description: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) /home/spikecol/public_html/bull/includes/class_core.php on line 274
    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.
    The installation for this board is very confusing. I'd rather place the files in and go to a page where you fill in the information as part of the installation. It seems like you fill in the information in the file itself which is very confusing to me.
