Unhappy PHP Tracker 1.4-- Install.php

I have installed the script on my server and when i access the config file at the bottom i see this

// These are usually filled in by install.php.

$dbhost = "localhost";
$dbuser = "trackeruser";
$dbpass = "trackerpassword";
$database = "mysql_select_db";

?>

so i go to install.php, select the first option and enter those details, submit but i get this error,

Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'trackeruser@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /home/gbxemuc/public_html/._/ngage/tracker/install.php on line 75
Can't connect to database: Access denied for user: 'trackeruser@localhost' (Using password: YES)

What do i do??
Please please help!!

Make sure u have password correct and make sure your user have access to database (or creating new databases). If connecting using persistent connect make sure your host allows it.

When installing PHPBT I don't think u need to touch config file. You need to adjust conf later on.

Have fun

It's called "config-sample.php" for a reason. Ask your webhost what the real settings are and fill them in to install.php.

Install.php will try to make a config.php file for you with all the settings filled in. If it can't, edit config-sample.php and put in the new correct settings and save it as config.php.

And don't cross-post.

Edit: rewording
