Error: Unable to connect with MySQL.
Please ensure your MySQL username and password are correct.
Get his every time whilst trying to get past step 4 of the setup, I have established that the host is valid the database exists and I have permission to access it and do anything I want with it. Have copied pasted the host, user, password and database name that all work in a php script I wrote to test it and still get the same outcome. I am using XAMPP on a windows 8 machine and am logged in as an administrator.
If everything matches, naturally there should be some sort of configuration issue, that is one thing you never see fails in a live environment, it either works if it is correct or it does not.
Capital letters makes a difference. Try a more simple password, username if you mixed special characters in it.
I really don´t have much more to go on here.
I wrote a php script that uses the same credentials to access the database and create a table, it works.
I copied and pasted the access credentials into the form at step 4 and they are rejected.
I typed them in verbatim, they are rejected.
I used "root" with a blank password, it was rejected.
PHP version is 5.6.12
Apache version is 2.4.16
MySql version is 5.6.26
