Access Denied on New Installation

Post by CocoaXChange » 30 Oct 2017, 02:51

Hi, I have a new installation using XAMPP-PHP on Windows 10. No errors on installation. I had errors using v7 so reverted to 5.6
Index of /opencats
Parent Directory
2017-10-29 20:33
Apache/2.4.23 (Win32) OpenSSL/1.0.2h PHP/5.6.28 Server at localhost Port 80
Access denied for user 'cats'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I created a DB as opencats, with a user of opencats and cats. I tried hostname localhost and but the same error. I've seen very similar questions but non of the solutions seemed to help.

Are you sure, that your DB is accessible with credentials that are in config.php?
Please test if you are able to connect to DB via a mysql client.
