I am using dreamweaver










installation help


« on: Today at 10:10:08 AM »






all i am doing is producing a database on my local machine


i have named my database in phpmyadmin


and linked (created) a user for it in the privaleges section also highlighting a password for the user


then i have a connect_to_mysql.php script





1: "die()" will exit the script and show an error statement if something goes wrong with the "connect" or "select" functions.

2: A "mysql_connect()" error usually means your username/password are wrong

3: A "mysql_select_db()" error usually means the database does not exist.


// Place db host name. Sometimes "localhost" but

// sometimes looks like this: >> ???mysql??.someserver.net

$db_host = "localhost";

// Place the username for the MySQL database here

$db_username = "talos342c";

// Place the password for the MySQL database here

$db_pass = "dollybrom1";

// Place the name for the MySQL database here

$db_name = "mydbstore";


// Run the actual connection here

mysql_connect("$db_host","$db_username","$db_pass") or die ("could not connect to mysql");

mysql_select_db("$db_name") or die ("no database");



then i have a mysqlquicktest.php




// Connect to the file above here

require "connect_to_mysql.php";


echo "<h1>Success in database connection! Happy Coding!</h1>";

// if no success the script would have died before this success message




and they are saved in a file called storescripts both of the above files


so i then proceed to try to seeif i can get a connection




! ) Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'talos342c'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\wamp\www\myNewweb\storescripts\connect_to_mysql.php on line 19

3 0.0038 673248 mysql_connect ( ) ..\connect_to_mysql.php:19

could not connect to mysql



what i think is happening is that access is being denied due to the password well i have typed the password in time after time into phpmyadmin in the privaleges section, but something is wrong ..
