[RESOLVED] Need Help with pphlogger





Phil
I'm trying to set up pphlogger on my account and am having trouble.

When going to setup.php I get this error:

unable to connect to database on 'localhost' with user 'phil'
(1045) Access denied for user: 'phil@localhost' (Using password: YES)
Please check your settings in config.inc.php !


I created database through c-panel, as far as I can tell.
What could I be doing wrong?

apart from creating the database, did u create that user and give that user access to that database? that can also be done thru cPanel.

Try that first if u didnt do that and if that still dusnt work, look online here:

Post back once you have more info

You need to create a user for your database. Make the username and database have a descriptive name, such as 'pphlogger'.

Your cPanel username is prepended to the name, so if you type 'pphlogger' for the database and usernames, then it will come out as: 'phil_pphlogger'. Then, add the database name, MySQL user name and MySQL password to the config.inc.php file. It should now work.

If you have any other problems, please feel free to ask Very Happy

Great! It's working now.
Thanks all!
