    Hi. I when I go to my forum url, I get this:

    IPB WARNING [2] mysql_connect(): Access denied for user '********'@'localhost' (using password: YES) (Line: 131 of /ips_kernel/class_db_mysql.php)
    SEMrush
    There appears to be an error with the database.
    You can try to refresh the page by clicking here.

    Error Returned
    SQL error: Access denied for user '********'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
    SQL error code:
    Date: Monday 11th of September 2006 08:50:21 AM


    I ask my host why this happened, but they say there are no way to tell, but they can fix it for $15.
    Now, can anyone here tell me how to fix it myself ?

    Your username & password combination is wrong. Do you use cPanel or some other control panel?

    I use cPanel, what I dont understand is that, how can the password be wrong without me changing anything ? The forum has worked well untill yesterday, then I tried to open it, then I got this message.
    But lets say the password has become wrong, where do I change the password ?

    Well, something happened. Maybe your host did something.

    cPanel - MySQL Databases

    You won't see passwords there, but you can add a new username/password.

    Use form under "Current Users" to add a new user. Then you have to add that user to your database (you do that on the same page).

    After that, update "conf_global.php" file with your new username & password.

    Keep in mind that cPanel usually adds prefix to your database name & username so your username will probably look like this: accountName_usernameYouWant.
