Alright, well, I am on step 4 of installing the software when it gives me:

Could not connect to database-server (Access denied for user 'nobody'@'localhost' (using password: NO))

Now, Ive checked and re-checked all the information multiple times. Deleted users and recreated them, etc. What I find weird is when I input false data I get:

Could not connect to database (Access denied for user 'necro_network'@'localhost' to database 'necro_false')

But when the data is correct, it doesnt even connect. This has been bugging me for hours. Ive tried both the quick installation and the manual installation and I still get the same problem. Any help?

Hi,

One possibility I think is if you chose to install on an MSN or have the forum in a separate database, but only filled in the site database details and left the forum database details blank.
Could that be the problem?

Thank you for the response :)

I have the MSN thing checked, but everything is filled out correctly. Ive gone through the whole page multiple times, trying to get it to work. The only error I am getting is with the OCP database settings.

I believe I've found the problem. A bug fix in the last patch release revealed a new bug.

In the mean-time, please disable Javascript in your browser just for step 4, and it should get passed ok.
