hello..everyone..i got the very weird problem with my connection to database..currently i doing some program with php and mysql, and i use include 'db.inc'; file for every php file where i want to query to the database..ok here is my problem...because of the covenience i use statment like
i declare the variable as
$hostName = "localhost";
$username = "root";
$password = "123";
$databaseName = "testing";
at my db.inc file
$connection = mysql_connect($hostName, $username, $password);
  mysql_select_db($databaseName, $connection);

but when i try to connect it give me an error message like this..
Error 1045 : Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

but i when i replace the above statment like below
     if(!($connection = @ mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "123")))
       die("Cannot connect2");

     if(!(mysql_select_db("testing", $connection)))

double check your using the correct password, i am assuming ur doing it on your local machine so that souldnt be much of a problem, also can u login to the database with those user/pass if u can then make sure the inc file is correctly included
ok, so my PHP is a bit rusty... my replies are 90% ok.
the other 10% either have syntax errors or are the "hard solution"
