Database Server Error


Recommended Posts

I am a newbee and I have looked through a number of posts and have tried a number of things, but I am still stuck getting this error:


Access denied for user 'username'@'server1.freesitespace.net' (using password: YES)


I am using myfreewebsite.org to host my site and on there they have both a MySQL Databases and phpMyAdmin. I have set up my database, added a username and password. I have tried to upload to local host as well as to the site address that they have given me and each time I get the same error. I have gone in and edited the configure.php files in the main directory and in the admin directory and get the same error. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott

The user name and database name sometime have to have a pre-fix on

so say your DATABASE user name is scott

and your web host control panel user name is username


your dataabse user name will look like


your database name is like this also.

Keep at it and welcome :-)
