problem with my database.yml - access denied

Trying to get Rails up and running on my webhost and I keep getting an
error when I try to generate the scaffolding.

here is there error:
Access denied for user 'kgreer'@'localhost' to database
'kgreer_DbMain'

Can I put my password "in the clear" in the database.yml? or am I
supposed to do some kind of hash of the password? I am using mySQL 5
as the database.

Also my password ends in an exclamation character. This doesn't need
to be escaped in YAML does it?

Thanks,

Yes. The entry in database.yml is clear text.

Never heard of a problem, but don't know about the exclamation character for
sure.

Best regards
