mysql_connect - Access Denied
Posted by: Des Davies

OK, having moved on from the problems I was having with LOAD DAT INFILE, I've been trying to get a PHP page to do the table creation and data inserts instead. However, that's causing me an even more basic error - can't connect to the database.

I've tried this on my webhost - creating the database through HELM (SWAP) and assigning a user to it (SWAPUSR). I've also tried the same thing on my local mySQL by creating the DB manually and doing "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES on swap.* to 'SWAPUSR'@'%' INDENTIED BY 'password'.

In both cases when I open the PHP page I get an access denied error on the connection to the DB.

I'm using...

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost","swapusr","DB@Ccess");
if (!$conn) {
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

which gives me...

Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'swapusr'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in E:\wwwroot\sites\SSM\members.php on line 208
Could not connect: Access denied for user 'swapusr'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Can someone please help me here?
