Error Message Connection to database failed

edited October 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I am trying to install 113 to Xampp. After I log in I get this message Error Message The connection to the database failed: Affected Elements MySQL.OpenConnection(); The error occurred on or near: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) I looked at the Xampp mysql user and password settings and found: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root'; // MySQL user $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ''; // MySQL password (only needed // with 'config' auth_type) My vanilla data base settings are as follows: <?php // Database Configuration Settings $Configuration['DATABASE_HOST'] = 'localhost'; $Configuration['DATABASE_NAME'] = 'joomla'; $Configuration['DATABASE_USER'] = 'root'; $Configuration['DATABASE_CHARACTER_ENCODING'] = 'utf8'; $DatabaseTables['User'] = 'LUM_User'; ?> What am I doing wrong? Thanks Larry
