Okay - I guess I didn't explain specifically enough. Its not a problem with xoops. Its how you set up your database. For some reason, in the c-panel when you add a database through mySQL databases, the system adds your login to the beginning of the name. So if you called your database XOOPS and your log in to the cpanel is snake1 then the database is named snake1_xoops. Not only that, it does the same thing with the user name - so if your user is snake1 then the actual user name is snake1_snake1 - get it?? AND - this is important - you have to add the user to the database you created (its just one more step). Anyway - I got the same error as you when I made these mistakes. I'm sure if you check it out again it will work and make sure you use the correct names when installing xoops. For a better explanation I found you a tutorial thats great: http://www.ninehours.com/tutorials/1

One more thing - why slag XOOPS - its free software?? I think its fantastic that people are developing this stuff and handing it out for free - maybe you should spend some honest time learning the system so that you can join the team in providing better support.

Hey there - there is actually a thread on that in the installations part of the forum. However - I ran into this problem today and was able to solve it - its not an XOOPS issue but a server side/database issue. I have cpanel to manage websites - on cpanel go to mySQL databases. Create new database. Create new user and password. THEN - add user to database. Also for some reason when I created the database i called it xoops, but the system renamed it mylogin_xoops and the same with the user name.

Hope that helps.
