I am having the same probelem.


Here is my info:


The error message upon install-


A test connection made to the database was NOT successful.


The error message returned is:


Access denied for user: 'interior_oscommerce@localhost' (Using password: YES)


Please click on the Back button below to review your database server settings.


If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company.




My configure.php file:


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'localhost'); // eg, http://localhost or - https://localhost should not be NULL for productive servers

define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', '');


define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'false'); // secure webserver for catalog module

define('DIR_FS_DOCUMENT_ROOT', $DOCUMENT_ROOT); // where your pages are located on the server. if $DOCUMENT_ROOT doesnt suit you, replace with your local path. (eg, /usr/local/apache/htdocs)

define('DIR_WS_ADMIN', '/admin/');


define('DIR_WS_CATALOG', '/catalog/');


define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');

define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/');

define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'images/');

define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');

define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/');

define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/');

define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/');

define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/modules/');

define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'backups/');


// define our database connection

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'interior_oscommerce');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', '*******');

define('DB_DATABASE', 'interior_oscommerce');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false');

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql');




Could it be because I am doing this online, not on my own system?

If only I was the one helping you...
