I am trying to install Movable Type.

Upon configuring the config.cgi file, I receive the following error:

"Got an error: Bad ObjectDriver config: Connection error: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES)"

I created a new mySQL database, user name, and password in Cpanel. Added the user to the database and granted full privileges.

My cgi config file contains the following:

ObjectDriver DBI::mysql
Database mt
DBUser culley
DBPassword "example_password"
DBHost localhost

Any thoughts or suggestions on why I'm being denied access?

Thanks,

Culley

If the data base has been created from cPanel then it should look like :

ObjectDriver DBI::mysql
Database <username>_mt
DBUser <username>_culley
DBPassword "example_password"
DBHost localhost
