    I have failed to install wordpress. this is what it says;
    Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'emmateps'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /tmp/cpanel_phpengine.1340233469.27586XvdGvYQV8w on line 1617
    Access denied for user 'emmateps'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    What could that mean and what could i do to install wordpress?

    The database credentials you have provided are incorrect. Ask your hosts what the correct credentials are.

    Check that you are using the correct password and that the DataBase user has full privileges.

    If it is OK then I will suggest you to talk with your Hosting Provider for this issue.

    - First, try contacting the hosting provider if the database server is online / if they have any other problem at their end, or they made any changes to your account, or if there are any limitations/restrictions, if the hosting package is set to Windows and not Linux, etc .

    -Check you have actually created a database with the same database name as is in your wp-config.php file.
