Cannot Connect to my Database

Jun 3, 2014 by MirrorXYZ
Hi all
I recently moved my site to another provider and now i am having issues connecting to the DB. I get the following error in my phpbb board
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Access denied for user 'myuser'@'localhost'

I checked the board/config.php file and everything looks normal. can anyone please help me fix this?

Thank you

Make sure that the database user you are using has the required rightsfor accessing the  db on the server and make sure the password was moved over. You can also reset the user and password.
