    Hi,

    Sorry if another copy of this post appears elsewhere in the forum, but I'm not sure what happened to the last one I posted!

    Newbie question: Today I set up my first website's registration/hosting with a view to setting up a blog, the hosting pack included access to cPanel which I want to use for my new site, but I'm not having much luck in getting WordPress to install. To clarify I am doing the following: cPanel -> Fantastico De Luxe -> WordPress -> install, I select WordPress and enter enter my selected admin passwords and username, email and so forth and then press install.

    I keep getting the following message at stage 2/3 of the WordPress install process.

    "Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'username'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in/tmp/cpanel_phpengine.1318094787.32368a1lYsFTiVB on line1617
    Access denied for user 'username'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"

    What am I doing wrong!? From a written guide I understand this is all I need to do. Any help would be great. Do I need to wait for my website/nameservers changes to fully 'propagate' for 48 hours??

    Have looked at videos on YouTube and they seem to have different versions of cPanel, and it seems so simple! I have no knowledge of coding but the alternative seems to be the manual/database route, which I would rather avoid for now...

    Thanks in advance

    I would suggest you to reset your cPanel password. "Sync MySQL password with account password" should be enabled. Ater that try again.
