Have you checked this article already?



And? Did you find the error message, read the paragraphs and checked your details?


Yep. Everything was correct, I followed the advice at the end of the article and created a forum discussion.

I’m looking at your credentials and I see an error:

There is an additional space in front of the username here. That means you’re sending a different username to the database server, which obviously is not accepted.

I didn’t spot any other errors, so I think removing the space will fix the issue.

Also, I took a look at your website. Please note that proxy sites are not allowed on our hosting, even for personal use.


Oh my god im such an idiot I didn’t see the space! as for the proxy, I was just messing around because it seemed cool, didnt know it was not allowed, I will take it down!
