OS Commerce - Can't Log IN

 I am having trouble logging into the cart section of my website. It is built on the OScommerce platform. When I use my usual Login URL I get this msg...

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'bp0ad_8kEBl1e9'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home5/forgeinf/public_html/BPTREEMARKETING/httpdocs/store/admin/includes/functions/database.php on line 21
Unable to connect to database server!

seems like the password is wrong to connect to the database? I had to do some clean up work after someone hacked the site and with Bluehosts help we cleaned everything up, but all of a sudden I can't log in to the cart to make changes. Can any one help me with this?

Thanks!

you will have to go into your mysql manager and reset it to what was before and then update the passwords once you have control of mysql and then update your web site to use the new password
