Need Help Installing PP
I believe I have uploaded everything correctly to my public_html folder in my new account at eleven2.com. I also think I configured the pixelpost.php file correctly with the info I created in the MySQL cPanel:
user name (geck)
I try to run the installer at http://www.geckonia.com/pixelpost/admin/install.php but get this error when the page loads:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'geck'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/geckonia/public_html/pixelpost/admin/install.php on line 38
Error: Access denied for user 'geck'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
blog is going to be located at www.geckonia.com
My user name is geck
Here's what the MySQL page says:
MySQL Account Maintenance
Users in geckblog
geckonia_geck (Privileges: ALL PRIVILEGES)
Perl $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:geckonia_geckblog:localhost"," geckonia_geck","<PASSWORD HERE>");
PHP $dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "geckonia_geck", "<PASSWORD HERE>") or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());
Privileges: ALL ALTER CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES CREATE DELETE DROP SELECT INSERT UPDATE REFERENCES INDEX LOCK TABLES
Host (% wildcard is allowed):
You can use phpMyAdmin to administrate your MySQL databases in a web based environment.
Can anyone tell me where I went wrong?
This is becasue you do not have a database username added. You are just using the username: geck
it will be in the format like geck_geck or whatever you add.

PM me, I give all pixelpost users free hosting and free pixelpost setup!
Thanks! I tried everything I could think of, but keep getting this new error:
Error: No database selected
here is my cpanel mysql page:
if that is correct, how should I fill out these fields?
(assume my password is xxxxxx)
$pixelpost_db_host = "replace_me"; // database host, often "localhost"
$pixelpost_db_user = "replace_me"; // database user
$pixelpost_db_pass = "replace_me"; // database user password
$pixelpost_db_pixelpost = "replace_me"; // database
When I have the pixelpost.php file correct, is it ok just to replace that file on the server, or do I need to reinstall the whole folder.
$pixelpost_db_host = "localhost"; // database host, often "localhost"
$pixelpost_db_user = "geckonia_geck"; // database user
$pixelpost_db_pass = "xxxxxx"; // database user password
$pixelpost_db_pixelpost = "geckonia_geckblog"; // database
should do it. (note that only the database and database user need the geckonia_ prefix.) then you can just replace the pixelpost.php file, no need to re-upload the whole folder.
