Having connection problems related to password

Thread began 6/18/2010 7:08 am by gail.bergan407744 | Last modified 6/23/2010 2:19 am by gail.bergan407744 | 4037 views | 18 replies


Please read carefully:

I have two files in my Connections folder: one you provided "localhost.php" and one that refers to my preexisting database, "GCSMembership.php". I added your Users table to this database, and this is the one I need to ultimately access.

My server has provided me a username and PW to access the GCSMembership database and mysqladmin on their servers, which I have inserted in the proper place in the connections files: username gbergan and PW ******. They are no longer set as "root".

This is the issue: REGARDLESS of whether my php pages point to Connections/localhost.php or Connections/GCSMembership.php (both of which have the same username and pw), I get the same errors when trying to access a sample page, such as users_Login.php or users_Confirm.php:

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in /home/gcssepm/www/Connections/localhost.php on line 9

Fatal error: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in /home/gcssepm/www/Connections/localhost.php on line 9

They are sending me to you, and you are sending me to them, so I am getting the royal runaround here with no substantive help. Since I purchased this product from you, I expect you to be the greater help. If you need to see any of the files I am referring to, I will be happy to send them to you. PLEASE HELP.
