Error message - Exception: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) - indicates wrong credentials BUT ... I created a totally new user other than root and entered that one in the db configurations on the "bootstrap" tutorial/public/index.php page so, after that, I would think the error would show the new user instead of root?
This is a new development setup running Ubuntu 16.04, Apache, MySql 188.8.131.52deb2ubuntu2, PHP 7.0
I added the db credentials correctly on the "bootstrap" page on tutorial/public_html/index.php but It's acting like I entered them in the wrong location by it not changing the user name in the error message?
Thanks in advance.
