    I have created a database

    database name is africadi_students

    username: africadi_openme

    password: africadi_meandme


    My problem is trying to connect to my sql database via php

    I have already created a php file named datatest.php

    I inserted this code below to test it

    <?php
    mysql_connect("localhost", "africadi_openme", "africadi_meandme") or die(mysql_error());
    echo "Connected to MySQL<br />";
    mysql_select_db("africadi_students") or die(mysql_error());
    echo "Connected to Database";
    ?>

    but when I try running the script via datatest.php I get the following error message displayed below

    Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'africadi_openme'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/africadi/public_html/datatest.php on line 2
    Access denied for user 'africadi_openme'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    please try and solve the problem when you have time, thanks


    I have been having this problem for over a month now, what is wrong?

    Either your password is wrong or it and/or the login doesn't exist.

    I already figured out the problem. I has to do with the password. When i was creating a username it already has africadi_ as the prefix so my username became africadi_openme I also created a password but a prefix 'africadi_' was in front of the box so i typed in meandme and came to the conclusion that my password is africadi_meand me . I later used meandme as the password and it worked well, thanks anyway for your responses.
