2.2.1 Install help

I setup a new db and user. When I click install I get the following error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome to the community.

    I'd suggest you check the user credentials for your DB, and perhaps add another user to double check.

    Tried that and even creating another db. I know that the localhost and the way I am using the usernames should work because I have another forum that is running fine on another db.

    @whu606 Sorry forgot to say the other forum that I am using is SMF.

    I figured this out thanks.
