    Hi there,

    I am using a dedicated server.

    I have setup the website via my plesk panel installed and have created the database through plesk on MYSQL 5.0.

    I am trying to install wordpress via web platform installer. I have no problems until trying to connect the wordpress to my database.

    I keep on receiving this error message "this product did not install successfully: the database **** could not be created. Access denied for root@'localhost' (using password:yes)

    Please help this has been doing my head in for the last two days

    Check the database permissions of the root user.

    Also, check your password for the root MySQL user.
