its been 3 days of struggling for installing roundcube and configuring it for me. i have a vps running centos 5.7 with kloxo 6.1.12 installed . first i tried upgrading the pre installed roundcube webmail , and somehow i managed to do this job , then tried to enable password plugin wich failed miserably and so far couldnt achieve anything . Later i found out the cause was kloxo . so i tried installing RoundCube on a subdomain such as : mail.ustmb.ir , i followed all the instructions but to my surprise it doesnt even install now and gives me the error:

DATABASE ERROR: CONNECTION FAILED!

Unable to connect to the database! Please contact your server-administrator.

while almost everything is the same as my former installation except for the databasename its username and password . i checked the connectivity of database connection and it was fine. can you please help me solve this problem ? info : database connection :

$rcmail_config['db_dsnw'] = 'mysql://mydbusername:dbpasswordqxFH@localhost/soloroundcube';

please let me know what else is needed to be presented ( and by the way i tried numerous times to register at their forum , but the activation link is not getting sent , and there is no means of contacting the admins , and this is the last hope of mine )

Regards Hossein


Edited: after configuring the database , i had to point to the mail.mysite.com/installer/rcube_install.php and then try again . i missed that part and mistakenly was visiting the main page , so i kept getting that error message
