The error is saying the database can't be accessed. You probably changed the login details for the database when you made your change. That is fine but you also have to change them on the server.

Just to expand on the above, edit the settings for db name, user and password so they match the values you have set in








If you can't update includes/configure.php you will need to chenge the permissions on the file so it is writable and once you have updated it secure the file again so it is not writable.
