0. Error: Access denied for user: 'aadbuser@xxxx'

Warning: Access denied for user: 'aadbuser@xxxxx' (Using password: YES) in /usr/local/web/phplib/db_mysql.inc on line 73 Database error: pconnect(xanadu.cyborganic.org, aa-user, $Password) failed. MySQL Error: 0 () Please contact foobar@somewhere.com and report the exact error message. Session halted.

Typically this means that the DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD, DB_NAME setup during editing config.php3 in Install 4.1 don't match the one you gave permissions to in Install4.2. In particular note that if the DB_HOST is absolute e.g. "aa.apc.org" then the permissions are going to have to include the machine name that the Apache server runs on e.g. aadb@bigserver
