Hi again people.
I'm now the process of installing dolphin on another site of mine. I'm doing everything exactly the same way as I've done it three times before on other sites, but this time I'm having major problems getting my SQL database to register.
I've been stuck on the database screen for hours now, constantly having to return and reinput the same info over and over. It's a total nightmare. Everytime I get to the final step, I have the dreaded :Access denied for user 'mysite'@'localhost' (using password: YES), and I just don;t understand why?
I've set up the DB, I can see it, and my username, as clear as day in my cPanel. It's there...I'm the only user on there. I even called my husband over to show him because I thought I was going nuts.
When inputting the info into the dolphin install area, I am doing it correctly. the DB and user are copied DIRECTLY from the MySql page on my hosting. I'm not putting in just the end part of the DB name, nor am I just putting in the end of the username, which I gather is a common mistake. I'm putting this in:
DB Name: site_dbname
Again, coppied directly from what is shown on mysql page.
What in the heck can be wrong? I just don't understand!
Also, I've tried deleting the DB/user and creating new ones and following the same input steps. Even that's not working.
This is my own hosting account and I have no restrictions in place to stop my db from going up or connecting. As I say, it's there...It's in my cPanel and it's registered on my homepage of my cPanel.
Any advice would be awesome. Thanks!
