Blank pages

I have used the SecurityAssist wizard to create pages for log in, registration and log out but I'm getting blank pages.

I inserted the code to display errors and got this:

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/.sites/123/site19/web/Connections/Desmond.php on line 9

Fatal error: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/.sites/123/site19/web/Connections/Desmond.php on line 9

When I try to view it using F12 I get this:


Warning: require_once(Connections/Desmond.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\xampp\htdocs\dbusers_Registration.php on line 1

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'Connections/Desmond.php' (include_path='.;C:\xampp\php\PEAR') in C:\xampp\htdocs\dbusers_Registration.php on line 1

I'm really under pressure with this as this project needs to be completed today and another project using Data Assist completed by Friday and I can seem to get anything to work correctly, even using the instructions and examples.

Help needed please.

The first error you are getting is telling you that the details in your connection file on your server are not correct. The values that you have specified in here do not have access to the db. You will need to update the details in the connection file on your live server with the correct username and password in order to access the db. You may also need to adjust the host value that points to the db. You should have the values you need for this in the settings on your hosting account, if you can't get to them you may need to contact your host to help you retrieve them.

The second error you are getting when you test locally is telling you that the connection folder is not in your web root. What folder are you storing the files in locally on your web server? You will need to adjust the testing server URL value to match the location of the files on your local server.

Hi Eric

I sorted the second error by saving the file to the htdocs folder in the xampp on my hard drive.

Is it just the localhost part in connetions file or will it also be username and password that need changed?

Thanks for the help

You will need to make sure that the connection file that you use on the live server matches the connections details needed to access your live db. It is very common to have the host set to localhost but you should check your hosting settings to make sure you are using the correct value for this setting.

Cheers Eric

I am working on two projects at the same time and just managed to get Data Assist to connect to a database when uploaded, after checking the details and changing the database nane etc so I will probably be able to configure the Security thing the same way.

Many thanks for the help and pointing me in the right direction.

It is very common to need different versions of the connection file. One thing that I will usually do is to keep the different versions in the connection file and just make sure not to upload the connection folder everytime.
