Database connection error


Oct 19, 2014 09:26AM EDT

I was running Koken fine. But my server was running an old version on PHP and MySQL so I updated them. Woken stopped working. I tried to reinstall but am unable to.

Database connection error: Access denied for user 'xxxxxxx'@'localhost' to database 'koken'

I'm not sure where to start with trying to figure out what's going on. Any help would be appreciated.

Christopher – is this an installation of Koken on your own server or through a hosting provider? I ask because we actually don’t provide support for local installations because of all the possible problems that could occur in that environment (and the lack of access).

Hi, I had the same issue. I think its because of special character in your password. Try to use something easy. At least this worked for me.
