EmonCMS on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B with Raspbian Stretch

Hey there, i’ve just installed (or tried to) EmonCMS on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B using Raspbian Stretch. This is my first time using Linux based OS so I just followed the steps detailed in

Everything seemed to be fine until I tried to access EmonCMS from Localhost. The message I get is:

“Can’t connect to database, please verify credentials/configuration in settings.ini”
“Error message: Access denied for user ‘emoncms’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)”

So I have no idea how can I fix this, which commands should I execute, and so on.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello @Rivazinho did you use the linked EmonScripts install method or the archived documentation on that page? I would recommend using the EmonScripts install script or just downloading the pre-build image.
