Connecting to Database


Recommended Posts

I am having the same problem trying to use the web-based installer.



There was a problem connecting to the database server. The following error had occured:


Access denied for user 'cetacea_dbadmin'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


Please verify the connection parameters and try again.



Settings are as follows:


Database Server: localhost

Username: cetacea_dbadmin

Password: xxxxxxx

Database Name: Store


I have setup this database myself using phpMyAdmin via WampServer.

can be incorrect password or username not granted to access DB

Please read this line: Do you want to find all the answers to your questions? click here. As for contribution database it's located here!

8 people out of 10 don't bother to read installation manuals. I can recommend: if you can't read the installation manual, don't bother to install any contribution yourself.

Before installing contribution or editing/updating/deleting any files, do the full backup, it will save to you & everyone here on the forum time to fix your issues.

Any issues with oscommerce, I am here to help you.
