can't install on 1and1, maybe because of db socket?

    I just paid and downloaded xenforo, but I get an error when I try to install
    Access denied for user: 'dbo360200126@localhost' (Using password: YES)

    I've checked my credentials many times. I think the error *might* be because my server is using sockets...

    I have this problem with Kayako recently (took a long time to convince them that the error don't mean my credentials are wrong) and they had to patch their config.php and import routines because they were compliant with sockets.

    Can I get some help with the install here, or should I just refund the software? :(

    I found this FAQ: http://faq.1and1.co.uk/scripting/mysql/mysql_5/8.html

    It states:
    Try editing library/config.php to change:
    $config['db']['host'] = 'localhost';
    $config['db']['host'] = 'localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock';
