I always encounter authentication error when I connect vb.net to mysql

Posted 04 August 2013 - 04:58 AM

Help me please!
I always encounter this error whenever I connect vb.net to mysql:
Authentication to host 'website' for user 'username' using method 'mysql_native_password' failed with message: Access denied for user 'username'@'ip address' (using password: YES)


what should I do?
I already granted the user using cPanel. How can I solve this?
thanks in advance!

We need to see your code, what connection string are you using? put your code in CODE tags

There's nothing wrong with my connection string, I discovered that I did not set the remote access privilege in cPanel. But thanks anyway. God bless!
