Database connection error.

I am getting this error on install of magento on XAMPP. I have created the database in my php and set my username and password. What am I missing here?

Re: Database connection error.

I was able to resolve this turns out I was using the wrong username/password although I thought I had updated it. Problem is fixed now I have other questions Smiley Happy

Hello,

 

I was going to suggest to double check your database user credentials.

 

Any other questions i'm sure the loving Magento community will be happy to help!

 

Just post them Smiley Happy

Re: Database connection error.

I received same error.

All credintials were correct.

Ended up having to degrade my PHP from 5.4 to 5.3.

 

 

Re: Database connection error.

I am using 1.9.1 and my site is not connecting to my database, is there anyway to access the settings from admin page?
How do I know if magento is accessing database and are there any settings I can control?

I am not a tech person so simple terms if possible.. 

 

Thank you to all.

Re: Database connection error.

What error message are you getting Steven? Is this during install?

Re: Database connection error.

I installed fine, but I am not getting any of the information from the database.

I have a 1gig database, I had created a store and am using old database with new install.

I get no error messages so I am not sure what is going on.

 

Thank you,

Steven
