When I try to connect to the database using the install wizard I get the following error:

Quote:
1045: Access denied for user 'home_user'@'server.host.com' (using password: YES) @ Initiating mysql_connect


User is: home_username

Database is: home_dbname

Host IP is used

Most likely you have to use "localhost" or 127.0.0.1 as your IP. It seems your user is not allowed to connect to the database from a remote location.

I 'repaired' the DB and now have proceeded without error. Thank you for your help.
