Hi jvargas,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. I've reviewed the link you provided and it appears you have resolved the issue. Typically, errors such as these are caused by not having the correct database credentials (username/ password) in the configuration file.

If you still need assistance, please feel free to contact us.
