    Your MySQL username is not "root" which is why you are experiencing problems. You need to first create a MySQL Database and User via your control panel, and then update your software to use the username/password you created for that MySQL User. As long as you're attempting to login as root, the logins will always fail, regardless of whether you're using a password or not.

    Unfortunately at this time, due to the nature of the CSGo "skin gambling" websites and their use of Valve's Steam Trading API without their permission (Valve has issued statements and Cease-And-Desists to multiple skin-gambling sites for violations of their Acceptable Use Policy with regards to the use of their API's for gambling purposes), along with the current gambling/raffle/sweepstakes laws where our Free Hosting servers are located (Illinois, which has very strict online gambling/raffle requirements), we aren't able to host the affected website as the violations of Valve's AUP result in violations of our Terms of Service and AUP; the current Illinois laws also cause problems with legality of sites such as this.
