eCart and GoDaddy

eCart and GoDaddy

Has anybody used eCart with GoDaddy? I am completely new to shopping carts and have been working through the tutorial. I thought I would try importing the blue_sky_music.sql file in a MySQL database in GoDaddy, but I got the following error:

#1044 - Access denied for user 'bluesky11'@'%' to database 'blue_sky_music'

Any advise on setting up MySQL in GoDaddy to work in conjunction with eCart would be greatly appreciated!

This error most likely means that your username and password for connecting to the database is wrong.

I use ecart with GoDaddy and have been for a few years.
Whatever you do....DON'T USE COLDFUSION.
GoDaddy has a lot of problems with it.

I am switching all of my sites to PHP and don't yet have any experience with GoDaddy and PHP/Mysql. But they definately support it.

Good Luck and stick with it! Between the great WA support and GoDaddy support you'll be up and running in no time!

GoDaddy requires a proxy server to integrate with third party APIs like you would use with checkout or shipping.

You will likely need to post a support incident with your payment gateway and shipping provider to get that portion working properly as it requires some goDaddy specific updates. Many people have done it and you will be successful, but goDaddy does have one extra step that requires hand edits that we can provide you to cut and paste into the appropriate location.

Importing blue_sky_music using phpMyAdmin

Login to phpMyAdmin goes fine - setup the database, login into it via phpMyAdmin - all withouit a problem. Then when I try to import blue_sky_music I get the following error:

SQL query:

-- Create schema blue_sky_music

MySQL said: Documentation
#1044 - Access denied for user 'GHCNTest2'@'%' to database 'blue_sky_music'

Reference was made to the username and password possibly being wrong - I can login to the database fine through MySQL Query Browser and the backup worked fine through MySQL Administrator. The problem seems to be isolated to when I try to import it via phpMyAdmin (GoDaddy server).

I'm stumped! Any help?

It looks like the database name might be wrong. This is a permissions error, so it doesn't have anything to do with the code being wrong... most likely it is either the wrong database name, or somehow your permissions are wrong and you may need to contact GoDaddy if that is the case.
