Can't access database



I'm trying to install swiftriver on my localhost with XAMP for Windows and I get this error:

Database_Exception [ 1044 ]: Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'kohana'

Do I have to create a database named kohana?

I have access to mysql through phpmyadmin. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you


HI Cbandarrinha, As mentioned on the last thread, the new SwiftRiver code is in beta.

You can get a beta account at and see the code here:



If your PHP or Perl configuration files require a host name, you may have a problem with your host name.
