    Hi guys,

    I opened an account with zoom as recommended, but when I am trying to connect to the database on intal I am getting this error.

    Executing SQL structure...Could not select database <db details removed: Access denied for user user removed@'localhost' to database db removed <I removed the details for security

    I know this is the hosting company of choice for Esyndicat, so can anyone shed some light on what I am doing wrong?

    they use the structure of wwwname_database' but is there a prefix or anything for the password?

    I will be installing this multiple times on this server so really need to know what I am doing wrong, rather than ask you to install it for me :)

    Scrap this request (but leave it here for other poor souls ) LOL

    I failed to grant the right privilidges to the user after creating the db & user. All done now.

    yes, you can not install the script if you do not grant correct privileges to your database username
