    vBulletin Database Error

    Ahh, I don't do databases, I don't understand MySQL and this just happened at a friends site. Anyone have a vbulletin site that can show me what the databases are supposed to look like?
    This is the error we get in the source:
    <!--
    Database error in vBulletin :

    mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'website_website@localhost' (Using password: YES)
    /home/website/public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 231

    MySQL Error :

    check the password that vbulletin is using to log in to mysql. if necessary, reset the password in mysql to what vbulletin is trying to use.

    you really need to ask in a vBulletin support forum. i don't know anything about vBulletin specifically, just that it's powered by mysql. any advice i can give you would be generic mysql advice.

    means just this

    mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'website_website@localhost' (Using password: YES)
    /home/website/public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 231

    the password that vBulliten is using is not correct for the login credentials the site requires. it has nothing to do with vBulliten but the password he is using. well it does but it is what he entered and told vB to use.
    success is not by chance, it is by choice.

    yes, my point in directing him to a vBulletin forum is that he doesn't know where the password is assigned in vBulletin, and neither do i.
