    Error when installing burning boards

    Hello, I've uploaded my Burning Boards files to my public_html folder through FileZilla and created a mysql database through the wizard, assigned full permisions to the user and assigned the user to the database. I am using economy hosting, now the installation process of Burning Boards prompts me for:

    Hostname

    Username

    Password

    Database Name

    I type in my domain in the hostname tab, the username and password for my database and I get the following error:

    An error has occurred while trying to connect to your database: 
    Connecting to MySQL server 'www.xxx.com' failed: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'Sxxxx'@'ip-160-xxx-xxx-xxx.ip.secureserver.net' (using password: YES)

    @Semke69,

     

    I think Hostname must be localhost, did you try localhost...
