5.5x won't install, local or host. Access denied

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to install the phpvms 5.5 and got the same error on my local server and host. 

Error: Access denied for user 'xxxxxxxx'@'localhost' to database 'xxxxxxxxxx

Yes I already created new databases, yes I already uploaded the installation several times and still got the same error.

PHP Version 5.6.30 (host) // PHP Version 5.6.35 (local).

Any advices? Thanks!

  1. Check Credentials and Spelling (Do it again, even if you think you're right)
  2. Does the user 'xxxxxxx' have read/write access to the database? (I'm assuming you're hiding the actual username right?)
  3. Did you set a password? Sometimes LAMP environments default to empty or 'root' or 'password'

If that doesn't work, please share what LAMP environment you're using on localhost and if you have access to the localhost phpmyadmin.
