Zen Cart
I'm trying to install Zen Cart. I get through the installer, but when I try to set up the database, I keep getting an error saying "Connection to database denied". I'm using all the correct information in the email I received. What is the correct database host?

Hi easyonthetush,

What is the correct database host for ZenCart?

In most situations, ZenCart will run on the same server as the database server. For your database host, please use:


How do I create a new database for ZenCart?

It sounds like you already have the database name, username, and password. If by chance you ever needed to create a new blank database, you can use the MySQL Database Wizard within your cPanel to do so.

I hope this helps! If you need any further assistance, feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this page.
