General Error - Access denied for user (using password: YES)

Postby admin » Sat Oct 28, 2017 11:52 am

Symptom: You go to your site and this error message:
Return to index page
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Access denied for user 'phpBB_data@'localhost' (using password: YES) [1045]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

Solution: A connection to the data base was lost. Most likely a key file in the root folder has become corrupted (e.g. common.php). For the quickest solution reinstall a fresh copy of phpBB using your 'QuickInstall' tool in your host provider's control panel. Then go to the database, select and dump all files and import the back up of your last working forum copy.

You should be back online in no time, however at the last state you backed up. If having all your content back intact is crucial, then back up all your system files and one by one replace them with the new files in the root folder until you are satisfied with the results.
