    Hi,
    I'm a newbie to PHP and MySql.
    My problem is this. I host my site on a server that has poor customer support. And I have a billion files on it, too many to move to another server. I'm stuck with them.

    I'm trying to install a php program that has a self installer. The program cannot logon to the data base:

    Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: NO) in /usr/local/plesk/apache/vhosts/mgwebsites.com/httpdocs/login/config.php on line 11

    Warning: MySQL: A link to the server could not be established in /usr/local/plesk/apache/vhosts/mgwebsites.com/httpdocs/login/config.php on line 11

    User paths I am adept to. And I understand perl and its opening path e.g. /user/bin/perl......

    The php script calls for me to enter info close to that of perl. What do I put into these fields?

    //[database vars]\\
    $server = "xxxxxxxxxx";
    $username = "xxxxxxx"; //The username to access your MySQL DB
    $password = "xxxxxxxxx"; //The password to access your MySQL DB
    $database = "xxxxxxxx"; //Your MySQL DB name
    $table = "bbusers"; //Please leave

    I can get this info from my hosting provider,if I can provide them with the right questions.

    Thanks

    Paul

    You should be able to just ask your ISP for this info. You need server, username, password. You will probably have to ask them to create the database and table, or give you rights to do so.

    For more info on MySQL, check out http://www.mysql.com

    BTW: they also have a ODBC driver for MySQL. Makes setting up using Access very ease!:D
