[help] Error while installing WP using fantastico


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I need a little help here.......

When I try to install Wordpress using fantastico, it's always show up

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'xxxx'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /tmp/cpanel_phpengine.1328371738.586693yIGbn6eBYR on line 1617

Access denied for user 'xxx'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Can someone tell me what's wrong??? :(

I appears your cPanel user login does not reflect the correct password to MySQL. You should go to cPanel's password modification and change your password and this will reset the MySQL password. Then you should be able to use Fantastico fine.

I would however also recommend you consider using Softaculous which provides updates much quicker and is way less error prone.
