I was recently on another server prior to moving to Dreamhost when I just made the change due to a server crash on my former host. I was using CMS Made Easy and it was working terrific. However, now that I’ve moved to Dreamhost, I’ve tried to install CMS Made Easy and I keep getting this error:
“Could not connect to database. Verify that username and password are correct, and that the user has access to the given database.”
I’m not sure why it’s happening, but if someone could help me with this ASAP, that’d be terrific. I saw that Dreamhost offers Joomla, which seems like an awesome CMS, but when I tried to customize it and the sort, I got completely lost and couldn’t find a tutorial to my liking on how to create templates and fully customize the CMS.
So, if anyone can help me with this CMS issue, that’d be great. If not, I’d really appreciate it if someone could give me a really in-depth explanation on how to go about working with Joomla and creating a typical three-column layout with a top banner and footer.
Thanks so much!
