problems trying to download the software

I've just installed the software onto my website and now having problems with step 4

any help would be greatly appreciated - the following message appears 


Could not connect to database-server (Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES), mysql_connect() [<a href='function.mysql-connect'>function.mysql-connect</a>]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES))

Still waiting for a reply form the community - its most probably a really simple error on my behalf.

I think that I am tripping up over the database password - do I create a new password or use the one for ftp - or log into my control panel :'(

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thank you - the link was a real help.
I assumed that the installing wizard would set up the database on my site. 
I had to create the database and user and then provide the detail in step 4.
