Postby Guest » Tue Aug 23, 2005 8:59 pm


When I try to install OJS 2.0 on my website ... ll/install

it comes with an error message

Errors occurred during installation:

A database error has occurred: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)

Our webserver use MySQL version 4.0.23-standard . Even when I tried loading in Postgre SQL a blank screens come.

When I do manual installation and try loging in or visitng the site it says Database connection failed.

Please help

Database connection problem

Please check if you have installed PHP with support to the database you want to use (it seems to be the case with PostGreSQL).

The access denied message means you do not know the password to connect to the MySQL database. Check your MySQL installation and configurations.
