Database connection problems

Tagged:  

I keep getting the error:
Error creating database: Access denied for user 'dbo459737559'@'%' to database 'pp'
when trying to create the database. Although, the username is dbo459737559 but the error message displays it as dbo459737559'@'%.

I'm using 1and1 hosting.
I also tried manually editing the config.php file, didn't work.

On 1and1 shared hosting it seems odd the database name would be just 'pp' and not something longer. My suggesting is to double check your settings, make sure you copy and paste all database settings from your 1and1 control panel into PP setup screen and ensure each is pasted into the correct field.
