Ok rowan we will try in this thread, in the future double posting is frowned upon and normally doesn't get answers any faster.


When you created the database "mobiles" in MySQL did you add the user mobiles to that database?


Case counts, is the databse/username/password entered in mixed case. If so then during the install you need to entering the coressponding upper/lower case.


Double check your connectivity via phpmyadmin.
