Unable to connect to database
« on: August 28, 2006, 06:52:39 pm »


I have installed coppermine gallery version 1.4.8.
Everything worked fine, until I changed the user for the MySQL database.
Of course coppermine has to acces the database, and that happens with the username and password I gave while installing coppermine. But now I changed the the username and password, so I have to make clear to coppermine that he has to use other data.

My question is: Where does coppermine stores the username and password for the MySQL Database?

The error I get is:

Coppermine critical error:
Unable to connect to database !

MySQL said: Access denied for user 'edwin'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

The adress of my gallery is

I temporarely restored the old configuration so visitors of the gallery won't get annoyed with strange errors.
