I have recently setup a Red Hat Linux 8 Server with Apache Server mySQL (latest version) and php 4 installed on it.

Im trying to setup a program called phpAvailability its a calendar program for logging availability of rental houses.

However although i can login to mySQL through the command console, i get an error everytime i edit the config.php and try to access through the browser saying theres no password given.

The config file requires 4 variables to be set

$dbhost = \"localhost\";
$dbuser = \"your_mysql_username\";
$dbpass = \"your_mysql_password\";
$dbbase = \"your_mysql_database_name\";

these are all set correctly yet i still get this error. :?

Is there anything i have missed?

Im very new to this and any and all help will be appreciated
