Perch could not connect to the database

I just installed the latest version Perch (2.5.1) on my dev system. It works great locally. The problem occurs when trying to install it on my test server. I get the "Perch could not connect to the database" error.

I ran the compatibility test. I am using the exact same username, password, server and database as I did in the compatibility test.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Double check those details. The test does exactly the same thing that Perch does, usually it's just down to a copy and paste error.

Yeah, that was it. I typed the password wrong in the config file. Sorry to bother you! Thank you!
