  • Installing, problems with connection

    I can connect to mysql through securecrt, I have to use the following to log in..

    mysql -u <name> -p <dbname>

    When i use the same info in the script it will not work. My domain company says I cannot do admin tasks remotely, it will not allow it. I droppe the table, recreated and now i am getting..

    Attempting to attach to database...

    Warning: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES) in /serve/www/firstprophecy/forums/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

    Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES) in /serve/www/firstprophecy/forums/admin/db_mysql.php on line 40

    Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /serve/www/firstprophecy/forums/admin/db_mysql.php on line 47

    The database has failed to connect because you do not have permission to connect to the server. Please go back to the last step and ensure that you have entered all your login details correctly.

    Any help?

    This error means either:

    1. One or more of the following is wrong in your config.php file:


    If you are unsure of what the appropriate values are then you will need to ask your web host.

    2. Or that this db user is not assigned to that database or does not have permission to access MySQL. Since each web host is different, if you do not know how to do this then contact your web host for help.
