Hi All,

I have diligently followed the instructions at


To install DotProject

I have also changed the dotproject MySQL password to dotproject as it 
was blank.

I am still getting the following error.  Any thoughts?

*Warning*: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect 
<http://localhost/dotproject/function.mysql-connect>]: Access denied for 
user 'dotproject'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in 
*/var/www/dotproject/lib/adodb/drivers/adodb-mysql.inc.php* on line *354*
FATAL ERROR: Connection to database server failed
