Connecting to Mysql

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have mysql on my linux box and it works fine. It starts and eveerything. Im using webmin and there is a button which says \"create new table\". Then it asks for table, initial table then it asks for width and what it is, ie. text, int etc. . .

 

Now when im trying to install my invisionboard, it asks for

 

SQL Host : localhost

(localhost is usually sufficient)

 

SQL Database Name: test2

 

SQL Username: root

 

SQL Password: *********

 

SQL Table Prefix(You can leave this blank):

 

Then i fill out the administration information for the board and hit proceed and get:

 

The following errors must be rectified before continuing!

Please go back and try again!

 

Could not create a mySQL connection, please check the SQL values entered

 

Why is it not connecting?? It\'s running too. I checked through webmin AND /etc/init.d/mysql status running

 

So...what am i doing wrong??

 

 

EDIT:

 

I just found this at the top of the error page:

 

I just saw this at the top of the sm_install error page:

 

Warning: Access denied for user: \'root@localhost\' (Using password: YES) in /srv/www/htdocs/forums/sm_install.php on line 395

 

Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: \'root@localhost\' (Using password: YES) in /srv/www/htdocs/forums/sm_install.php on line 395

 

 

what does that mean? My root password is right and root is the top level user that can do anything so whats the deal??

 

Thanks.

be sure you didn\'t have capslock on... try the password on the command line and make sure it works. what is on line 395? mysql_connect?
