Problems connecting to the database

Problems connecting to the database

I am using DataAssist to create pages to interact with my database.

I have defined the site, created the connection etc in DW. Connecting to the server via FTP in DW works just fine, so connecting to the server is not the problem. When trying to connect to the database, I get the error:

MySQL Error#:1045
Access denied for user: 'admin@host.walstonet.com' (Using password: YES)

I think I know what the problem is. As you can see above, it says it is trying to connect using the user admin@host.walstonet.com. The problem is the site I am connecting to is dryforktack.com, not walstonet.com. I have the correct information in the database connection. There is absolutely no reference to walstonet.com in the site definition or the database connection. walstonet.com is actually the host for this site, but it's not the site I am connecting to.

So my question is, is DW doing something, or is there something happening on the server that is trying to connect to the host domain instead of the domain I'm trying to connect to? I think it is the latter, but I am wondering if that is correct, does anyone know what to do to fix it on the server. If I just take this same question to the host, I guarantee they're not going to know how to fix it. I really need someone who knows what this is to tell me what it is so I can go to the host and say this is the problem, and this is what needs to be done to fix it.

So if anyone has any idea how to resolve this issue, I would really appreciate the help.

Since I don't know how to make pages to interact with the database not using DataAssist, so finishing the site is dependent of getting this working.

Thanks so much for reading!!!!!

host.walstonet.com is the MySQL server name. This is not always the same as you Webserver, they may be different servers.

This error message is pretty cut and dry. It means the Username and password to connect to the mysql server is being rejected.

dont confuse FTP connectivity with database connectivity, just because your FTP connection is working, it does not mean that there is not a connection problem with the MySQL server, they are completely separate.

In many cases, the MySQL server will be configured to reject outside connections.

You should check with your host to see if this is the case, also check with them to get the correct information to enter for the database connection.
