Re: DB access problem in the first installation step.
Same with me, I tried a vanilla installation of bbPress 0.8.3 on my local machine, however, there is a slight difference:
I entered the ‘root’ as username in config.php, but the error itself is
Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: Access denied for user ‘www-data’@’localhost’ (using password: NO) in /var/www/bbpress/bb-includes/db-mysqli.php on line 80
There does not exist a user called ‘www-data’ on my mysql-server and I am completely sure that I filled in ‘root’ in config.php.
