View Full Version : SQL database information -

01-31-2006, 11:12 AM
Ive created a database and a table by uploading the sql file. I now need information and cant seem to access it. Ive gotten this message many times and Im now begining to wonder if I even have free access to my information:
#1044 - Access denied for user: "XXXXXXX@localhost' to database 'XXXXXXX-cards'

(I replaced my name with x's...)

The information I need is:
Database Host Address
Database Username
Database Password
Database Name
Domain Name

maybe ive taken too big of a bite off the cookie and im choking..but Im supposed to be able to create a database and Im not seeing how without my information.
lost (as usual!)

There should be a file for the script you are trying to run that will want you to enter that info.

Database Host Address = localhost
Database Username = first 7 letter of your domain _ username
Database Password = password for the user above
Database Name = first 7 letter of your domain _ database name
Domain Name = www.yoursite.com

Thanks! I found what My problem was. I was in fact doing all correctly but I had forgotten my proper password and that was what I was doing wrong. Now I have created my first real usable database!..im so happy!
