    Database can't connect - something wrong with the local host....error message below - anyone have this problem before?

    The connection parameters you specified failed to open a connection to the database. The database reported the following error:
    SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'admin'@'' (using password: YES)

    If you are installing on godaddy then your database host is definitely not localhost. You should get all of your information by clicking the Edit/View Details button. Here is an example of what I see on my panel:

    MySQL Database Information
    Database Name:a2000
    Database Version:5.0
    Description:Not Set
    User Name:a2000

    This along with your password is what you should be entering when setting up Vanilla 2.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the reply - and I did find the correct host name and also change the permissions -and it loaded Vanilla2 - I can't login - it just "searches" endlessly...but hey - am getting somewhere- will gladly take a "new" problem over nothing...

    Thank you TODD!

    The fresh version did the trick - even though my previous was only a few day old...

    Was going to try a fresh SQL database next - but works...
