TOPIC: Can't connect to LimeSurvey database. Reason: Access denied for user 'root'@'loc

Can't connect to LimeSurvey database. Reason: Access denied for user 'root'@'loc 2 years 11 months ago #102509

I am trying to re-install 192.

After successfully uploading the folder to my website, when I type my domain name and "/limesurvey"
instead of the regular installer windows this is what I get:

Can't connect to LimeSurvey database. Reason: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

What to do???

1.92 don't have installer. You have to set your config.php with the good informatoon for DB access.

The idea worked but when I try to update the following error message is received:

"ComfortUpdate step 3
Creating DB & file backup

Creating file backup...
Error : PCLZIP_ERR_READ_OPEN_FAIL (-2) : Unable to open archive 'F:\Web Sites\vhosts\sociomarketmetrics.in\httpdocs\limesurvey\tmp\files-20131217044755-7c6d9021a56931f0af825f6c2b12a952.zip' in wb mode"

Further when I try to import an lss file the following error is received:

"An error occurred uploading your file. This may be caused by incorrect permissions in your F:\Web Sites\vhosts\sociomarketmetrics.in\httpdocs\limesurvey\tmp folder."

Please advise sir.
