Database Access Denied

Hi guys,
I have tried to install Vanilla on my site and on the registration step I did everything and a message pops up after I press Continue:

Failed to connect to the database with the username and password you entered. Did you mistype them? The database reported:
SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user
'unaux_********'@'..*.***' (using password: YES)

Of course I put * for safety reasons

Can anyone help me


  • Hey guys,

    I just saw an email from cloudflare
    It says:

    UUUhhhhh, didnt find anything useful there.
    And actually I dont understand the post

    First post your domain name. Did you use the software installer? Or did you manually install?

    Database error is user name and password. It would be your cpanel password.

    cloudflare has nothing to do with it.
