Only a couple of options for that I would think.


You do in fact have the wrong password/user or you're querying the wrong server.



Everything's funny but nothing's a joke...

What type of system are you trying to install on, Windows or Linux?

Local: Mac OS X 10.5.8 - Apache 2.2/php 5.3.0/MySQL 5.4.10 • Web Servers: Linux

Tools: BBEdit, Coda, Versions (Subversion), Sequel Pro (db management)

Sorry about that - very late here in the UK.


If the db name is wrong you'll also get that message. For instance you can set up a database with a name like oscommerce, but the full db name might be something like yourdomain_com_-_oscommerce
