Database connection problem

What could be the reason and where to fix it?
This message pops up when the installer tries to contact the database.

Cannot connect to database.n Access denied for user ‘xnova’@’localhost’ (using password: YES)

The xnova user does not have access rights, if you administer the database yourself, then look towards setting the access rights of database users.

Alternatively, you could add a user, but allow him to connect only from a specific host.

Try connecting to the database, for example via phpmyadmin or the console, to check for access issues or problems with the installer.
