Access Denied. Problem with /classes/db/db.php

The shop has been up and running for years, but last night I went into my host's mysql configuration and changed the 'Description' to something more meaningful/accurate. I didn't change the dbname or anything like that, only the description.

but visiting the site, I get:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'dbo234035107'@'' (using password: YES) in /homepages/14/d115513559/htdocs/zen/classes/db/db.php on line 41

Access denied for user 'dbo234035107'@'' (using password: YES)

looking at file db.php, I see

mysql_connect($glob['dbhost'], $glob['dbusername'], $glob['dbpassword'])

I would have thought in the place of 'dbhost' etc should be the actual values... so I entered the actual values and uploaded the file, but I then just get another error. 

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'

What do you think?

In which file can I find what password and database name are being used to connect to the database? Maybe that's the key, perhaps I changed the password without knowing it.
