emonCMS on Pi SD Image. Running into problems here: Access denied for user 'emoncms'@'localhost'

I received a Pi and loaded the emonSD image. I followed the instructions for changing passwords and everything seemed to be set up. I’m thinking I may have missed a step with the password change process, as I’m getting this error when trying to hit emoncms from a web browser.

Access denied for user ‘emoncms’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)

I have done quite a bit of searching, and there are only a couple threads that seemed relevant, and those did not seem to apply after all. I am thinking this is something with MySQL permissions or configuration. I’m logged into MySQL as root, and see the emoncms database does exist, and it does have tables. I do not see any users in the users table.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Edit: I figured it out. Apparently, I reconfigured emonCMS to use a new password for mysql, but didn’t actually change the mysql password. Now that part is working.
