Tried to connect to my localhost and local mysql with

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost","User","Pass")
      or die(mysql_error());
But I get this error message:

Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'User@localhost' (Using password: YES) in c:\apache\htdocs\mysite\tester.php on line 2
Access denied for user: 'User@localhost' (Using password: YES)

Seems my user+password are wrong. But when I open WinMySQLAdmin 1.4 and look under my.ini Setup, it shows the same user+pass that I included in the mysql_connect call.

What is wrong?

There are many reasons why this can occur; I suggest you read the [a href=\"http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Access_denied.html\" target=\"_blank\"]relevant refman page[/a] and narrow done the possibilities. It's usually an easy fix.

Hope that helps.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
