    My host had to do an emergency evacuation of my server to a new server. After they transferred the site I get this error message:

    An exception occurred: Access denied for user 'xxxxxx'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/library/Zend/Db/Adapter/Mysqli.php on line 333

    I have checked all the passwords and they are correct. Just don't know what to look for next.

    Any help would be appreciated....

    Check that the details in library/config.php match the database details.

    I have checked them over and over... Still no luck in finding out what is causing the issue...

    Is there setting in the phpinfo that didn't get configured in the new server?? To cause this issue?

    It's saying that the database username or password is incorrect, check them thoroughly :)

    Is the username and server correct as well?

    Ended up being a bad mysql user name. Something went screwing in the transfer. Deleting the user and creating a new one fixed the problem. ;)

    Using DirectAdmin, since it isn't clear, while importing a database, you need to use the MySQL username, not your current, DA Session username.
