I get stucked at the Database Configuration page with the following error messege when installin MyBB:


There seems to be one or more errors with the database configuration information that you supplied:
Could not connect to the database server at '' with the supplied username and password. Are you sure the hostname and user details are correct?

Once the above are corrected, continue with the installation.

I have double checked all entered values several times. Before this I have installed e.g. Joomla, phpBB and SMF and the procedure are rather similar and I have never had any problem with this connection.

Sorry. Now it works. For some reason the database username was not created when creating the database in cPanel even though I deleted and recreated the db. When I checked the db and added the username again it worked.
