On my server the connection to MySQL is being done using the user that owns the PHP files. This resulted in wrong permissions for database access, even with correct (MySQL) root information.
With this configuration the installation fails with the message
Error selecting database terminationdb: 1044 Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'DBNAME'
Notice the empty username.
Proposed solution: Detect this case and suggest changing the files' owner to "root".
We should only be connecting to MySQL as the user you provide. Cannot replicate in new installer, closing WFM.
