Error 500 and database connection error

Hi all,
I am using Uberspace as my hosting provider and followed their instructions to install selfoss on my account.

When I load the page I get the following GET 500 error for this domain in the console:

In the debug message I get the following errors:
[2018-11-23 13:00:11] selfoss.DEBUG: Establish database connection
[2018-11-23 13:00:11] selfoss.ERROR: PDO::__construct() expects parameter 3 to be string, array given {"exception":"[object] (TypeError(cod$

#6 /var/www/virtual/<username>/html/selfoss/index.php(80): Base->run()
#7 {main}

It seems that the database connection is not possible as my database <username>_selfoss is still empty.
The crendentials should be correct, as I can login with them in adminer.

Could you please have a look?

selfoss is unfortunately based on fatfree framework, which sometimes behaves rather peculiarly. In this case, looking at the documentation, I would guess your password contains a comma character, which makes the framework split the password into an array. To fix that, you can either change the password or wrap it in quotes like this: db_password="pass,word"
