More info would help;
What host
what have you tried, please xxx any names and passwords
have you checked all the vars

Code: Select all

var $dbtype = 'mysqli'; (database type, usually mysql or mysqli)
var $host = 'localhost'; (database server name as host supplies)
var $user = 'xxxxx'; (database user name as host supplies)
var $db = 'xxxxx';  (database name as host supplies)
var $dbprefix = 'jos_'; (database prefix, default in Joomla 1.5 is jos_ )
var $password = 'xxxxx'; (database password as host supplies)

Hi, I did solve the problem. It was the password in the config file.

Thanks!
