Database Configuration :: Connection Error: 1045:Access denied for user 'a3249152_joomla8bce3a97'@'localhost' (using password: YES)User Privileges : Unknown
The error is caused by issues in the database connection. The credentials of the database user are incorrect. Contact your host to get the correct credentials.

BTW, your Joomla 3.9.13 is out of date. Version 3.9.20 will be released next week. Some third party extensions may also have later versions available.
