Problems access DB

Post by withaph » Sun Apr 04, 2010 2:30 pm

Hi - I was trying to setup phpbb in my free webspace and have run into problems immediately connecting to the db server.
Could not connect to the database, see error message below.
Access denied for user 'fwdbd6898'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I've provided the username/db name as above, and entered the password as supplied on the member facilities page - any suggestions?

I can delete it if you want (PM me if you wish to) but generally it is more useful to keep the thread and explain what the issue ended up being. However basic the error might have been you can rest assured other users will have (or will in the future) make the same mistake and threads like these might serve a useful purpose
