joomla- Database connection error (2): Could not connect to MySQL
Category: Joomla 3
I updated my password for my Joomla database to one that I could remember. I then got the above error message. I have followed your article in relation to this and have changed my configuration.php file to ensure that the correct username and password were included. It still does not work even though I copied and pasted the new username and password from the amended configuration.php file into the MySql database log in and it worked. This seems quite strange as it should now recognise the new details through the configuration file. I have also tried logging in from another computer but it still doesn't work. Is anyone able to advise please?
