mysql setup message

#1
Ok this is strange , I setup a test forum on a existing server , Once I got my real setup I tried to install xen this is the message i get


The following error occurred while connecting to the database:
Access denied for user 'flatgamer_mp4dog'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
This indicates that your configuration information is not correct. Please check the values you have entered. If you are unsure what values are correct or how to proceed, please contact your host for help. These values are specific to your server.

now the strange this is this is the exact same server , i used to build the test forum on and it went off with out hitch . Just looking for a little insight . I am not a newbie but not as well versed in the art of mysql

You are using the exact same credentials that worked before? Are you installing on a different server?

Otherwise this is just a matter of verifying the correct MySQL information. If your host gave you a control panel like CPanel or Plesk then you can verify the information in there.
