Access denied for user 'xxx'@'localhost'

  • Maurice

    Hi. I am installing in a shared webhosting account, so I went to the manual procedure and the data base was created
    No matter what I change on db.inc I always get the error Access denied for user 'xxx'@'localhost'
    I have tried with the following users: The owner of the database, root and even my user name with the hosting account.
    I have tried localhost, the IP, the domain name. Of course I have tried with the corresponding passwords for all this combinations. I dont have access to mysql root as it is a shared account.
    I am confused, on what user should I use and hostname. Any help will be appreciated, because I tried all … Thanks
