What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to import a vb 3.8 database into my forum but I keep getting this:

The source database connection details are not correct: Access denied for user ' lololololol_vbuser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

EDIT: I have entered the character set as well, still the same problem

That simply means the MySQL info isn't correct or is not working.

Verify the username, password, and database name in your CPanel. Also make sure the user has been granted access to that database in CPanel. This is all in the MySQL Databases area of CPanel.

That is all done, all the info is correct, I dont know why it keeps saying that. I have done it over and over just to be sure. I have entered all the correct details but still that. Any other solutions?

There is nothing else.

I can take a look if you want to give me access to your CPanel.
Alright I talked to Jake, I did do everything correctly. Deleting the db user and re adding it made it work for now for some reason. Thanks jake :)
