I\'ve installed phpMyAdmin on a remote server, input server ip, username and address as supplied by the hosting company and get

#1045 - Access denied for user: \'signalpumps@\' (Using password: YES)

I assume from this that phpMYAdmin is seeing the server but having trouble with the username or password or access privaleges. Is there a way of finding out which, using telent or the sql monitor.

What would be the prompts to use, as I\'m new to setting up a remote mySQL database.

ps I\'ve tried a little connect php file as well with the same error[/quote][/b]

I guess its a configuration issue. Check the user name you
have set and also supply the password in the config file of phpMyAdmin.

I\'ve tried every combination of username, password, host address, dbname that you can think of in the config file with no luck. I don\'t want to have a go unless I\'m sure it is their fault.

ask your hosting company, you might not have any privledges to do what phpMyAdmin can do...call or email your hosting company and ask to have full privledges to your database, and explain to them you are trying to use phpMyAdmin....

That is about all you can do right now....
