Joomla can't connect to database

Hi guys…

I am running through the joomla installation and when it asks for the mysql server setup stuff it won’t connect to the database.

I can connect to the db on the command line with:

[salt]$ mysql -h -ukimcms -p

but when I put in as my host and the user and passwords, it just says that the username/pass is incorrect.

any ideas?



i is stupid. :wink:

err…I guess I is stupid 2

Can you tell us what you did to correct the problem please?

I kept filling out the fields wrong …

if you do the one click install you should get an email telling you what to put in the fields.

Just make sure you’re filling in the fields corrently like the email tells you. I kept putting the database password instead of the database name in that field.
