Can't connect to local MySQL server

Hey Phill,

Try changing $username_cosmo and $password_cosmo back to $username_thilldesign and $password_thilldesign. Those are variables that hold the username and passwords and having different names will cause the connection to fail.

Keeping the localhost to change, your connection should be:

# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_thilldesign = "";
$database_thilldesign = "thilldesign";
$username_thilldesign = "cosmo";
$password_thilldesign = "cosmo";
$thilldesign = mysql_pconnect($hostname_thilldesign, $username_thilldesign, $password_thilldesign) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

If that doesn't solve the issue, please try to remove the existing connection, and create a new one in its place.

If that doesn't solve the problem, please let me know.
