Topic: Install issue

I've done the step by step tutorial twice and I get this

An error occured on line 58 in file /home/shopluvn/public_html/forum/include/dblayer/mysql.php.

PunBB reported: Unable to connect to MySQL server. MySQL reported: Access denied for user 'user'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

what the heck am i doing wrong??

Re: Install issue

Well that looks like a PunBB issue wink however, I'm going to guess that the user and password is not properly setup for your PunBB database. Also it looks like you are using the username "user" to access the database...

Re: Install issue

I've tried using the username and password I already have on file, I tried creating a new one. none of them work sad

Re: Install issue

Hi. Again, this looks like PunBB, not FreeRealty - however, can you log into mysql as the user 'user'? That's what it looks like you are trying to do.
If you have a different user, edit config.php to make sure that it is set up properly.

I don't know your hosting situation and that's always good to add when you need help.

All I have is phpadmin,  I have no shell access for the command line mysql stuff.

Are you able to get your database and reset the password?
